China hopes Japan will participate in co-constructing Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in a more active manner, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang said Tuesday at a routine press briefing.

Geng said that the leaders of China and Japan have reached significant consensus that the two countries carry our third-party market cooperation under the framework of the BRI. During last year's visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the two sides held the first China-Japan Third-Party Market Cooperation Forum and signed multiple cooperation agreements to propel BRI, which offers a new platform for both countries to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation.

"China is willing to adhere to joint consultation, construction and sharing with other countries, together constructing high quality BRI," Geng stressed, "to better benefit people of the world."
