China May be Invited to G8 Summit

Date Posted: 2000-02-12

According to recent press reports, the Chinese Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tang Jiaxuan, has expressed his intention to visit Japan this spring. Some circles in the Japanese government have recently been floating the idea of inviting China to attend the G-8 Summit in Okinawa. Diet members of the ruling coalition, according to the same sources, would like to see the Chinese attend the summit as observers.

Okinawa Governor Keiichi Inamine is also supportive of the idea. “We would be more than happy to have Prime Minister Zhu Ronghji attend," he said. The Chinese side has so far made no official comment on the idea.

Ever since a gathering in Osaka denounced the “Rape of Nanking” incident as an exaggeration, relations between the two countries have been cold. The Japanese government would like to find a way to get relationship back on track again, and the lawmakers see an eventual invitation of China to the Summit as one way of mending the strained ties. German Chancellor Gerhardt Schroeder and the British Prime Minister have also in the recent past, indicated their readiness to invite China into the G8 Summit.
