Japan’s NHK report says Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda will send a letter to Chinese President Hu Jintao to call for calm, high-level talks on bilateral and regional issues.

Japanese government officials say Noda will express concerns over the reaction of Chinese people to the Diaoyu Islands dispute. He will stress the importance of the strategic, mutually beneficial relations between Japan and China.

The two nations are to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic ties in September. Noda will call for bilateral issues-- as well as the regional matters-- to be discussed calmly by senior officials of Japan and China.

Japan's Senior vice Foreign Minister Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi will hand the letter to a Chinese official during his visit to Beijing from Tuesday.
