Amid Japan-China Political Deadlock, Progress Toward Freer Trade - Forbes
This is not going to end well. China owns Japan a revenge, otherwise, I see no chance Japan will cooperate with China and bulding a eastern asian FTA.
Actually, it would end very well. Trade binds everyone together into mutual systems of leverage, and profit is the best salve for old wounds.
Whether Japan wants or not, there will be a eastern asian FTA, being a part of it is better than being excluded from it.
Let's get straight, both Chinese and Japanese are progmatic. As long as we see the benefit of bening friends bigger than being enemy, Chinese will put revenge aside and Japanese will apologize.
Past history told us, even the leaders who have the most information still made mistake emotionally, I highly doubt what is going on between these 2 countries can be exceptional. China had a lot of good will gestures, but Japan seems only want to take advantage in stead of cooperating to build a postive circular.
