China, Japan leaders consider talking on the phone as relations continue to warm
China and Japan are recommitting to preserving their recently warming ties, and Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso says the countries' leaders should talk more on the phone, the Associated Press reported.
After Saturday's end to a summit of Asian and European leaders, Aso told reporters that he and President Hu Jintao agreed to cooperate in meeting the challenge posed by the global financial crisis. Aso says the two also discussed North Korea's nuclear program and the war on terror and called for further developing relations.
The Japanese prime minister also suggests that the countries leaders build up enough trust that they can pick up the phone to chat.
