YOKOHAMA, Japan — The leaders of Japan and China met on the sidelines of a Pacific Rim summit Saturday, their first formal meeting after a territorial dispute erupted two months ago, badly straining ties between the Asian neighbors.

The meeting between Prime Minister Naoto Kan and Chinese President Hu Jintao was announced at the last minute, after days of consultations between the two sides.

Hu was in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, for an annual summit of 21 Pacific Rim countries and territories.

About 4,000 Japanese protesters gathered for an anti-China rally Saturday near the summit, waving Japanese flags and shouting "defend our territory" and "defeat Chinese imperialism."
