  • Description

    The re-establishing of diplomatic relations between Japan and the People's Republic of China is expected to be the main result of talks taking place between Japanese Premier Paling Tanaka and his Chinese counterpart Chou En-lai.

    Mr. Tanaka's arrival in Peking on Monday (25 September), for the start of his historic six-day official visit to China, was watched live on television by millions of Japanese and Chinese viewers.

    SYNOPSIS: An aircraft arriving at Peking airport bering a very important visitor - and there to meet him, Premier Chou En-lai. The new arrival is Japan's Premier Kakuei Tanaka, in the People's Republic of China for an official six-day visit. The historic event was watched live by millions of Japanese television viewers through a satellite link. The greeting for Mr. Tanaka was elaborate but coolly formal. President Nixon of the United States received a similar reception on his official visit to China in February. Premier Tanaka has inferred that while in Peking, he intends to apologies for Japan's past aggressions against China.

    The welcome for the Japanese leader included a guard of honour mounted by all three armed services. Than after the anthems of both countries, Mr. Tanaka and Premier Chou En-lai went to have talks which were described as 'very frank'. The outcome, expected to be contained in a joint communique, will announce the resumption of diplomatic relations between Japan and China.....which was the main point of Mr. Tanaka's visit.

    Premier Tanaka's visit to China will not be business only..... he'll also be sightseeing, and attending banquets in his honour.
