Abe said he would stress the importance of strengthening a free and fair trading system.
Japanese officials reaffirmed Friday that it would not compromise or back down on issues including China's human rights record.
Some other users urged caution during Mr Abe's visit, accusing an "ambitious" Japan of being a two-faced neighbour.
According to the Japanese government official, Abe told Li that, "the global community including Japan has been paying close attention to the human rights situation in China". Abe and Li also agreed to move ahead with negotiations on a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which the two countries and ASEAN are promoting, as well as a free trade agreement among Japan, China and South Korea. Then they will visit a company which is a leading manufacturer of factory automation, Gokhale said, adding Abe has taken personal interests in working out the programme for Modi's visit.
This was announced by the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe at the opening session of the local Parliament, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.
Trade tensions with Washington have driven Japan and China into an unlikely friendship.
"Relations with Russian Federation are in a paralyzed state".
He said the foremost of these would be how to leverage Japan as a development aid partner for India's economic modernisation and flagship development programmes such as Skill India, Make in India, and Digital India, as also the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high-speed rail project.
During Abe's visit, the leaders will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the signing of a treaty between the two countries that was meant to set the tone for their relations following the war.
Relations between China and Japan have overcome "obstacles" and are moving "from competition to cooperation", the nations' leaders said on Friday as they signed new deals to prevent military clashes at sea and boost financial and economic collaboration. Even as Trump's trade conflict with China rages, the Japanese auto giant Toyota plans to increase production in China by 20 percent, expanding plants in two major Chinese cities, according to news reports in Japan. The Hollywood Reporter said China has imported a total of 12 Japanese films during the first three quarter of 2018. Meanwhile, Premier Li apparently asked Abe to actively extend Japanese cooperation for the One Belt One Road initiative, promoted by Beijing as a new Silk Road spanning the Eurasian continent.
The incident prompted anti-Japanese riots in China, and kicked off a frosty spell that has only recently begun to thaw.
Unlike the United States, Vogel said, Japan never harbored illusions that China would become like the West, an outlook that has led to more realistic expectations about the extent of a possible rapprochement.
Diplomatic observers said the spat between China and the United States provided an excuse for Beijing to get closer to Tokyo, but said that tensions between the two could still erupt.
"I expect that there will be some specific outcome as a result of the discussion (on collaboration in infrastructure projects)", Gokhale said. Mr. Abe said that Tokyo and Beijing will "fulfill responsibilities" for peace and stability in East Asia.
This year, China imported various Japanese films and has been exploring its pool of stories that Beijing could adapt.
