  • Description

    Members of a goodwill delegation from The People's Republic of China were guests of honour at the Japanese Prime Minister's annual "cherry blossom viewing party" in Tokyo's Shinjuko Gardens on Thursday (19 April).

    At the party, which brought together several thousand Japanese and foreign diplomats, businessmen and journalists members of the Chinese delegation were welcomed by Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka.

    The Chinese visitors, who are members of the China-Japan Friendship Association, are touring Japan for a month.

    Although they were invited to Japan by a private organisation, the Chinese visitors have received many official invitations. Mr. Liao Cheng-Chih, President of the China-Japan Association, speaking at t reception on Wednesday (18 April) called on Japanese business and political leaders to continue efforts to strengthen the friendship between the two countries.

    Earlier, Mr. Liao met Japanese Foreign Minister Masayoshi Ohira. They agreed on the need to improve relations between the two countries.

    The goodwill visit was particularly welcome to the Japanese Government, coming in a period of Sino-Japanese rapproachment. Japan and The People's Republic of China established diplomatic relations recently.
