CNA -- Oct 09
China has told Japan that they should handle sensitive issues such as Taiwan "appropriately". President Xi Jinping made the remarks during his first phone call with Japan's new Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
The Japanese leader has signalled he would take a more assertive stance on Beijing, as he delivered his first policy speech to parliament. Mr Kishida said he wants a stable relationship with China, but also wants to hold Beijing accountable for its actions. For now, he has made COVID-19 his top priority.
