BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Developing a China-Japan relationship that features long-term stability and friendly cooperation conforms to the fundamental interests of the two peoples and the expectations of the international community, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Wednesday.

Yoshihide Suga was elected to succeed Shinzo Abe as prime minister and was inaugurated Wednesday.
