China Daily, China Daily
Though Abe paid lip service to improving China-Japan relations after the election, no specific proposals have been made by Japanese political parties to mend relations with Japan's neighbors. And his words so far on the islands dispute with China run counter to better relations. The LDP's manifested foreign and defense policies won't win Japan friends. Instead, they may destabilize East Asia.
