china has reached a historic turning point in beijing the first japanese leader to visit in seven years the two countries have signed a series of trade agreements they will hold talks with china's president xi jinping in the coming hours despite growing trade ties in recent decades japan and china have had a strained relationship since the end of the second world war more now from our beijing correspondent adrian brown. the leaders of asia's two largest economies have agreed to basically put their differences aside to sit down and talk to one another as opposed to threatening each other which is what was happening not so long ago i think what has changed think what has changed the dynamic in the relationship is the election of president donald trump because both tokyo and beijing have been feeling the heat from the white house president from pursue also been threatening japan over its trade practices and of course tokyo is worried that president trumps america first policy could lead to a scaling back of the u.s.
11:10 am
military presence in asia and i think the message from china's leaders to shinzo abi is going to be this you know china can be a stable alternative to the united states already the value of trade between these two countries stands at three hundred billion dollars and of course china remains japan's most important trading partner and you know shinzo r.b.a. is saying he wants to lift the relationship to a new level so the mood music so far appears to be quite positive all the rivalry between asia's two largest economy stretches back to the early years of the second world war generations of chinese have been taught about attacks by chinese troops most prominently the nanjing massacre of one nine hundred thirty seven the commemoration of war dead in japan remains an issue for many in china who consider the dead japanese soldiers to be war criminals the two countries also disagree about the sovereignty of islands in the east china sea which lie on huge oil and

gas reserves japan is trying to develop an improved trade partnership with the us after the trumpet ministration pulled out of the transatlantic partnership china has been operating a free trade area for asian countries since twenty ten and is in currently embroiled in a trade war with the us let's get a view now from stephen nagi who's a senior associate professor. at the tokyo christin university he joins us now live via skype from the japanese capital good to have you with us stephen wanted to make that of this to be a parent warming in relations between china and japan who has the most to gain here . well i think what we should understand adrian that the warming the relationship says more about normalization of relations and what that means is that both countries would like to move their relations race relationship back to focusing on economics focusing on trade and to push aside some of the difficult political
11:12 am
issues that really is a division between the two states who has the most to win this is very difficult question to ask but i think we can clearly understand that beijing is concerned about the sino u.s. relationship they're concerned about the trajectory of that relationship and they would like to it they're taking in economy and enemies approach and what i mean is that they'd like to put fires out within the region they'd like to warm relations with traditional rivals such as japan and concentrate the diplomatic efforts on the united states so where does this fit into this ongoing geo political and economic contest between china and the u.s. you're saying that japan is basically self protecting here. well japan is looking at both the united states and china and trying to figure out what's the best balance between these two states and as you and your segue mentioned depends biggest trading partner today is china and that relationship will continue to be
11:13 am
important but japan's a security partner without comparison is the united states but the united states and japan also have many overlapping institutions and quote including a liberal democratic institutions including. a focus on freedom of press a focus on human rights and these are very important bonds between the two stakes so japan is trying to figure out how they can continue to have good relations with both of these states and at the same time play a role in ensuring that. a negative spiral inside the u.s. relations doesn't affect japan's trading relations and security partnership with us so what does china get out of this so the benefits purely economic. well china is looking for to take some of some of the heat off the off china japan plays a very important role in building norms within the region japan's trying to support
11:14 am
something called the free and open in the pacific which focuses on rule based behavior in terms of trade but also in terms of maritime policy china feels that by warming relations with japan you can get more economic. you can forge a better economic relationship. it may be able to. use economic leaders to induce tokyo to put some distance between washington and tokyo but i think that's unlikely and last i think china is worried about its own economic slowdown and its economic slowdown is going to require more technological infusion from japan most lucky more f.b.i. foreign direct investment from japan and more trade which apparent. really good to talk to you so many thanks indeed steve nugget this city associate professor says my question. will get a weather update thanks to dan as thousands of people continue their journey north through mexico the u.s. says that it will send extra troops to its southern border but some americans are

entering the u.s. a seven thousand strong so-called migrant caravan has been walking north through central america for more than a week most to form a woman's uterus and guatemala and they say that trying to escape poverty and gang violence i was in a stronghold and reports now from the state of shop us in mexico. a slow moving stream of around four thousand five hundred people heading to the u.s. border it's unlikely they'll get there for another month or more. but then matson these pictures have been a dominant factor in the run up to the u.s. midterm elections that's why many in the u.s. from the top down have speculated on who's behind the caravan of whites coming now to president hernandez upon the earth. told me that the caravan this now making its way through mexico headed for the southern border was organized by leftist organizations and financed. by venezuela. and we. as as we've said and the democrats made and the democrats. they offered no proof
11:20 am
those in the caravan like tanya and his sister told us they weren't even aware of the u.s. elections yet my mother load them with them when migrating because of a lack of jobs because of the criminals not because of presidents or politics or anything like that the coming for a better future for office and all children. they say the caravan began with groups between those planning to head north when the news spread to home during t.v. others like yearly and his friends decided to join billy crudup but i don't know that just yet i realize because of a report on the t.v. the carbon has already gone ahead but just beat deal so people and it got bigger and bigger city came off. but the one during government claimed this man was the mastermind behind all of it former opposition congressman and long term migrant activist twenty's he told us all he did was support the caravan on facebook
11:21 am
conspiracy theories aren't necessary in this case he said the reality is simpler. it's not trump that organized this nor the democrats and not venezuela either it's hunger and poverty i'm proud of that long term problem is just one of many factors behind the movement a previous caravan earlier this year made people see the when they travelled together they were safe from gangs and also migration authorities here in mexico it also taught them that that way they didn't have to pay out fowls ins of dollars to people smugglers when you add all of that to the poverty violence and political dissatisfaction that many experienced back in honduras it's a powerful incentive to get out and to get out together. that could explain why this caravan is not the only one on the road to the u.s. and others are ready following hot in its heels john homan how does it a chop us the f.b.i. has sent teams to search mail sorting centers in the u.s.

took a conciliatory tone do you see how nice somebody. this is like i do you ever seen that it didn't last long he sent out a tweet just hours later blaming the mainstream media for the anger in the country his spokeswoman followed suit very. appropriately to disown her people used on your network a number of times not only to describe the president but to many people that work in this administration absolutely day in day out there is a negative tone ninety percent of the media attention around this president is negative despite historic job creation his supporters in the media when even further claiming both sides are to blame were and do not sit there and point to what the other team did to cause this we don't know the perpetrator we don't know the motivation that it was interesting because hillary clinton says we can't we can't step aside from hateful rhetoric and tell democrats have bullied their way she was talking about policy america is a country divided so much so that even an attempt to carry out the mass killing of
