What does the future hold for China-Japan relations? | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “What does the future hold for China-Japan relations? | ABC News” – below is their description.

As China Tonight reports, tension over Taiwan and long-simmering territorial disputes are bringing historic grievances out into the open.
