Hatoyama, Xi agree to further deepen Japan-China strategic ties

''Much to our pleasure, the China-Japan relationship is currently moving in the right direction through efforts by both of our governments and people,'' Xi said in a speech during the banquet held at the premier's office in Tokyo.

''I came to Japan this time to make efforts primarily to develop China-Japan friendship and assume my responsibilities in my own way,'' the Chinese vice president, who is seen as the front-runner to succeed President Hu Jintao, said.

Hatoyama said during their meeting, ''I believe that the great power of Vice President Xi is necessary (to realize strategic, mutually beneficial relations).''
