VLADIVOSTOK -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to accelerate arrangements for the Japanese leader's planned visit to China next month, in another sign of a thaw in the fractious relationship between Tokyo and Beijing.

The leaders held talks Wednesday on the sidelines of an international forum in the Russian Far East port city -- their first summit since meeting 10 months ago at an APEC summit in Danang, Vietnam.
