HANOI, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- China on Friday refuted the report that said it agreed to resume negotiation with Japan on the exploration of oil and gas fields in East China Sea, during a meeting between the two countries' foreign ministers.

A spokesman from the Chinese delegation said the report was totally inconsistent with the fact. In the meeting between Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and his Japanese counterpart Seiji Maehara Friday morning, Yang urged the Japanese side to go in the same direction with the Chinese side, and create sound atmosphere and condition for the two sides to implement the principles on the issue concerning East China Sea.

Yang and Maehara held a half-hour meeting on the sidelines of a series of summits between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its partners in the capital of Vietnam.
