BEIJING, April 15 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang met on Tuesday with a delegation from the Japanese Association for the Promotion of International Trade, headed by Yohei Kono, the association's head and former Speaker of the Japanese House of Representatives.

"The China-Japan relationship currently faces serious difficulties, for Japan's reasons," Wang said, calling on Japan's business community to make efforts to overcome the obstacles in bilateral ties.

China attaches importance to developing the relationship with Japan and advocates promoting ties to move in a steady and healthy direction on the basis of four bilateral political documents, Wang said.

He said that deepening bilateral economic and trade cooperation conforms with the interests of the two sides.

Kono, for his part, said Japan should honor the "Murayama Statement," which was made by then-Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama in 1995 to reflect on and apologize for Japan's war-related history. He added that the country should promote exchanges and cooperation in trade and economy and create conditions for the improvement of bilateral ties.
