In responding to this, Geng said the Chinese and Japanese leaders have reached important consensus on conducting third-party cooperation under the Belt and Road framework.

During Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit last year, the first China-Japan Third-Party Market Cooperation Forum was held by the two sides where a series of concrete cooperation documents were inked, he added.

Geng said that jointly building the Belt and Road has offered a new platform for China and Japan to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation.

He also stressed that China stands ready to work with all countries to ensure a high-quality and high-level implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative and deliver more benefits to people of all countries.
