The Chinese language aspect was led by Overseas Minister Wang Yi, the primary go to by a Chinese language global minister for bilateral talks since 2009.

Wang spent eight years in Japan as a diplomat with three of those years as China's ambassador. Japan has come in for criticism from US President Donald Trump on trade and been hit with tariffs on steel and aluminium, but Japan has not yet threatened counter-tariffs. He last visited Japan in August 2016 for a trilateral meeting with his South Korean and Japanese counterparts.

Wang on Monday holds high-level talks with Kono and other Japanese Cabinet ministers.

While Mr. Fukuda denies the charges, the Finance Minister said Thursday he issued a warning to the official about his conduct stating he did not intend to investigate further or punish him.

They also discussed the vision each country has for the wider region, namely Japan's "free and open Indo-Pacific" strategy and China's "One Belt, One Road" infrastructure megaproject.

Wang said any parties, including Japan, welcome the recent important changes on the peninsula.

Since the Japanese government purchased most of the Senkaku Islands from Japanese owner in 2012, China has frequently sent its ships into Japanese territorial waters around them, raising fears that unintended conflict between Japan and China could be sparked in the area. China is motivated by a lack of transparency in US policymaking, as well as tougher American security and trade stances, she added.

As years of strained relations have given way to a thaw between Japan and China, Kono and Wang are expected to plan for mutual leaders' visits in future, starting with a long-delayed summit in Japan between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and South Korean President Moon Jae In to take place next month.

"For China, Trump is unstable and unreliable", said Yasuhiro Matsuda, a professor of worldwide politics at the University of Tokyo.
