HANGZHOU, China, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Japan and China wrapped up the latest round of high-level meetings in Hangzhou, China, Saturday with further vows to strength bilateral ties.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Dai Bingguo and his Japanese counterpart, Yachi Shotaro, met Thursday and Friday in the seventh round of the "China-Japan strategic dialogue," the first official meeting between the two nations since last fall's visit to China by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

China's Xinhua news service said the discussions in Hangzhou focused on building "strategic and mutually beneficial ties."

During Abe's visit, the two countries pledged to cooperate on matters such as finance, technology and energy.
