Chinese President Hu Jintao will visit Japan in recent time, and the two sides are discussing details of the visit, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said on Wednesday.
"There is no such an issue as postponement of President Hu's visit," said Yang at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual parliamentary session.
He made the remarks when answering questions from a Japanese journalist on whether President Hu's state visit to Japan, scheduled for this spring when cherries are in full bloom, would be postponed to some time after May.
"Spring is a beautiful season in Japan. Both Chinese and Japanese peoples expect President Hu's visit in spring," Yang said. "This visit will be a historic one, which will boost relations between the two countries."
