Nanking is forgiven.

Is slavery in the USA forgiven? Is the Holocaust of Jews in Europe by Germans forgiven? Is the genocide of Armenians by Turks forgiven?

The war is over. Been long over. Cooperation is good for peace, lest we want more war.

Further improve ties??????

China has been cruising close to Japanese territorial waters.

Relations right now are near they lowest levels.

North Korea seems ready to have operational nukes, and China has been seen as supporting their nuclear program.

Yeah, let’s hear it for “further” improved ties.

LMAO
