The Japanese government pinned high hopes on the “three arrows” of fiscal reform, eager to suppress the deflation that has haunted the country for about a decade.

Bilateral relations between China and Japan have grown increasingly dangerous as tensions rise over the disputed Diaoyu Islands and the Yasukuni Shrine. The two countries must restore trust and consider the long-term political, economic and environmental consequences of their actions.

Feng Zhaokui writes that to resolve the escalating tension between China and Japan, we must safeguard the results of the world’s anti-fascist war and observe the 1978 Treaty of Peace and Friendship between China and Japan.

A November 1 article written by the Wall Street Journal has been the cause of some concern for those who follow US-China-Japan relations. While the US has maintained its position of “neutrality,” China is concerned about its own security as well as that of the region as Japan’s nationalistic leaders continue to pursue more active military and foreign policies.
