Analysis: China reaches out to Japan to mark diplomatic milestone

This year is the 50th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between Japan and China. The two countries are fostering economic ties, but Japan tends to share the United Statesí unresolved concerns about China's military expansion and human rights issues.
As relations between China and the US grow increasingly tense, Beijing wants to strengthen bonds with Japan. Itís a bid to prevent Tokyo from growing more closely aligned to Washington.

Chinese President Xi Jinping told Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio in a phone call last October that he wants to use the 50th anniversary to kick off a new phase in bilateral relations.
