China tells Japan it is no threat

BEIJING - Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie told his Japanese counterpart on Saturday China's development was an opportunity and not a threat, in an apparent effort to allay concern in Tokyo at its military modernization.
Meeting on the sidelines of a security summit in Singapore, Liang told Toshimi Kitazawa that China was "willing to work together with Japan to further boost mutual political trust, exchanges and cooperation and properly handle issues of sensitivity", China's state news agency Xinhua said.
