Yamaguchi in Beijing, meets with top Chinese officials
December 3 , 2017
Earlier that day, Yamaguchi met with Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang. The two agreed on the need for close cooperation and coordination to dissuade North Korea from further developing its nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.
Yamaguchi was in China to take part in a meeting of representatives from some 300 political parties of more than 120 countries hosted by the Chinese Communist Party’s International Liaison Department. On December 2, he joined a group discussion led by Wang Hunin, a member of China’s powerful Politburo Standing Committee whom the Japanese party leader had met a day earlier, and was one of six speakers on the occasion.
Yamaguchi’s latest meeting with President Xi was the fourth since 2010.
