Japan and China are said to be trying to arrange a meeting of their leaders during an upcoming APEC forum in Beijing.
Various Japanese media outlets are reporting that former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda held a secret meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping late last month and delivered the current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's call for talks on the sidelines of the November forum.
The Chinese leader reportedly expressed a will to take positive steps to mending relations strained from historical and territorial disputes.
China-Japan relations have dipped to their lowest point in years due to disputes over remote islands in the East China Sea and Abe's visit to a controversial war shrine, which China sees as a symbol of Japan's past imperialism.
