外文标题：China, Japan take steps to bury hatchet after 3 years of dispute
BEIJING: China and Japan have reached an agreement on maintaining peace in the disputed chain of islands in the East China Sea after three years of war mongering. The agreement was reached in Beijing between China's State Councilor Yang Jiechi and the visiting National Security Advisor of Japan, Shotaro Yachi.
The new move may also pave the way for the first ever meeting between Chinese president Xi Jinping and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Cooperation summit next week.
India and other Asian countries are watching the new move closely because it might have an impact on their territorial disputes with China, sources said. They include Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia, which are sending their heads of state to the APEC summit.
In Tokyo, Japan's Abe said, "Both Japan and China are coming to the view that it would benefit not just the two countries but regional stability if a summit is held". But China has not yet confirmed that president Xi would meet him.

String of pearls is slowly being created around the dragons neck, so it is reacting. It is still after India. Be aware of this dragon.

If this accord between China and Japan holds,Barack Obama's much touted pivot to Asia is likely to be half dead.
