My view on Sino-Japanese relations(李 易宣・日本語学科4年)

 Chinese President Hu Jintao visited Japan recently. It comes as the once-chilly Sino-Japanese relationship continues to thaw. Sino-Japanese relations started to warm when the leaders of both sides made reciprocal “ice-thawing” visits. President Hu met with Japan’s Emperor. Hu also met with leaders of Japan’s parliament and political parties as well as people from all walks of life in Japan. He made an important speech at Waseda University. In his speech, the president looked back on the unfortunate history between Japan and China. Chinese people suffered severe disasters and Japanese were also deeply hurt by the Sino-Japanese War. He promised that China will continue its policy along the path of peaceful development. Hu’s visit was considered a great chance to improve bilateral relations.

 As is well known, China and Japan have a long history, the two nations got along well with each other for thousands of years. The people communicated widely, both politically and culturally. A famous story is of a priest named Jian Zhen who tried his best to bring Buddhism to Japan in the Tang dynasty (680-907AD). The two countries had a deep affection for each other. However, more than half a century ago, a disaster happened. The war tragedy hurt Chinese people, as well as Japanese people. When we see some historical pictures and films, we can not imagine what happened in that period.

 In my opinion, emphasis on remembrance of history means not extending hatred, but ensuring tragedy doesn’t happen again. Improving, stabilizing Sino-Japanese relations is not only beneficial but also essential to Japan and China. As young people, we should try our best to eliminate misunderstanding and do whatever we can do to improve Sino-Japanese relations. As an international student, when I arrived to Nagoya, I met many kind Japanese people and made friends with them. And, I will never forget my Japanese teacher who still teaching in Dalian University in China.

 I hope people all over the world become good friends. China welcomes to you.
