China and Japan will hold the sixth round of talks on East China Sea issues on July 8 and 9, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said in Beijing Tuesday.
Jiang said that common development of the areas and the setting aside of disputes would help maintain peace in the East China Sea and would be conducive to the healthy development of the China-Japan relations.
China is willing to work with Japan to continue to resolve issues through dialogues and consultations, Jiang said.
The previous five rounds of talks were held between October 2004 and May this year. (Source: Xinhua)
