BEIJING, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Representatives from Chinese and Japanese media organizations pledged here Tuesday to enhance talks and cooperation in an effort to strengthen understanding and friendship between the people of the two countries.

The media professionals voiced the pledge during a dinner party in which they summarized a two-day dialogue between Chinese and Japanese media.

Wang Chen, chief of the Information Office of China's State Council, or China's Cabinet, said the media plays an important and indispensable role in enhancing people-to-people friendship and understanding, which serves as a foundation and precondition for pushing forward state-to-state relations.

It is necessary to continue to cement media dialogue and cooperation, so as to give full play to the media's important role, Wang said.

Noting that 2012 will mark the 40th anniversary of the normalization of China-Japan diplomatic relations, Wang said the media should take this opportunity to enhance affection between the two peoples.

Michisada Hirose, president of the National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan, said the media of the two countries will exert a positive role in narrowing bilateral misunderstanding as long as they take a sincere attitude toward each other's countries.

The two-day dialogue, which grouped senior journalists from several major media organizations such as China Central Television and China Radio International, as well as Japan's Asahi Shimbun newspaper and Kyodo News, ended on Tuesday.

The dialogue, hosted by the Information Office of China's State Council and a Japanese organization established specifically for the dialogue, is the sixth of its kind since the mechanism was initiated in 2007.

This years' talks focused on the impacts on Sino-Japanese ties imposed by emergencies in both countries as well as large-scale emergencies around the globe, the media's social responsibilities, and the new era for bilateral media cooperation.
