BEIJING, May 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping on Thursday urged Japan and China to effectively manage crises and properly handle sensitive issues, especially those concerning each side's core interests and major concerns.

Xi made the remarks during a meeting with a delegation of Japanese lawmakers, headed by Masahiko Koumura, president of the Association of Dietmen League for Japan-China Friendship.

Xi praised Japanese lawmakers' contribution to the development of bilateral ties, saying the bond is tightening and interests integrating between China and Japan.

The two states, along with booming economic cooperation, maintained sound contact in safeguarding regional peace and development, promoting regional cooperation and tackling global challenges, he said.

Xi proposed that the two states follow the consensus reached between their national leaders, constantly enhance political and strategic mutual trust, and push bilateral ties in the right direction.

He called on the two sides to bolster contact and exchange in humanitarian fields and improve feelings between the two people.

His association will continue its efforts for the development of bilateral ties, Masahiko Koumura added.
