HANOI -- Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang on Friday called for Japan's active involvement in helping to resolve his country's territorial dispute with China in the South China Sea.

Speaking to The Nikkei ahead of his first visit to Japan from next Tuesday to June 2, Quang used stronger-than-usual language, apparently aiming to send a warning to China, which has been increasing its military presence in the region by conducting bomber drills and deploying missiles.
