Japan and China to continue working level talks in Tokyo

Japan and China will soon resume working-level talks suspended since Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi's visit to a Tokyo war shrine last year Japan 's Foreign Ministry announced Friday.

The talks will take place Feb. 10-11 in Tokyo and cover a range of bilateral and regional issues, the ministry said in a statement.

The countries are at odds over territory, oil and gas deposits in the China Sea, and interpretations of Japan's colonial past.

China angrily cut off talks after Koizumi visited Yasukuni Shrine in October last year, claiming the visit demonstrated Tokyo 's lack of remorse for atrocities committed in China before and during World War Second, reports the AP.
