Gemba Koichiro called China’s rapid development "an opportunity" for Japan. He said stable relation between the two neighbors is of great significance to both Asia and the world.

Koichiro took up his post in September. He’s Japan’s youngest Foreign Minister since World War Two. His visit is seen as paving the way for new Prime Minister, Yoshihiko Noda’s first visit to China.

Koichiro is also expected to meet State Councilor Dai Bingguo and Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi later Wednesday night.
