BEIJING - Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda told his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao on Sunday their two nations share an interest in preserving stability on the Korean peninsula after the death of Kim Jong-il, North Korea's long-time leader.

"Peace and stability of the Korean peninsula is in a common interest for both Japan and China," Noda told Wen at the start of talks in Beijing, where Noda is on a two-day visit.

Noda is the first regional leader to visit Beijing since Kim Jong-il's death was announced on Monday, leaving his youngest son Kim Jong-un as leader of the reclusive, communist state. Kim's death rattled the region, with fears of nuclear tests and military confrontation.
