"I hope that we will be able to discuss what and China can work together on in the global arena, not just bilateral issues", Kono told reporters on Friday.

Successful visits by Wang and Li would provide positive publicity at a crucial time for Abe, whose chances of winning a ruling party leadership election in September have been damaged by a series of allegations of cronyism and government cover-ups. "But together with Japan's efforts. we would like to bring China-Japan relations back on a path of sustainable and normal development".

The visit by Wang, a veteran Japan handler who had served as an ambassador to Tokyo, comes as the world's second and third largest economies attempt to ease tension, caused by longstanding disputes over maritime claims and Japan's wartime legacy.

But Tokyo is eager to get the relationship back on firmer footing, especially as it fears being shut out of negotiations on North Korea's nuclear programme in which Beijing is likely to be a major player.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly proposed the "phased, synchronized" measures toward denuclearization at his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing late last month.

Japan hopes to expand its exchanges with China to stay involved as worldwide efforts to engage with the North intensify.

South Korea's Moon and US President are also preparing for separate, direct talks with Kim, leaving Abe to continue asserting a "maximum pressure" campaign against the North.

But their response was emphatic and Guardiola said: "It was a good test against one of the toughest teams in the league". It means the 24-year-old is the league's most accurate goalkeeper by a comfortable distance. "I think United will win".

Abe is set to meet Trump in Florida this week, where he plans to press the president to maintain a hard line on North Korea and seek to persuade him to take a more multilateral approach to trade.

Instead, the sources said they will agree to demand "complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization", starting with North Korea disabling its nuclear facilities and readmitting inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency without preconditions.

Abe and Xi have not held talks in the format of an official visit by either side since both men took office in 2012.

According to the sources, Abe will ask Trump to present the demands as a policy shared between Japan, the United States and South Korea when the USA leader meets Kim for the first time in a historic summit expected to take place by early June.

"I would like us to build peaceful and friendly relations befitting the name of the treaty", Kono said, adding that the two nations are "partners in cooperation" and share an understanding that they should not threaten each other.

Wang, who will be in Tokyo until Tuesday, will also participate in the fourth China-Japan High-level Economic Dialogue.
