China needs Japan, and Japan needs China, in the coming war with North Korea. They must put aside differences for strategic military reasons.
Just divide the things in half geographically and be done with it. Half are near Japan, and half are near China. They both should own parts of the island chain, if you look at a map.
I expect China to reach out to Taiwan and Vietnam also, for better relations.

China and Japan have been enemies of long standing. This envoy cannot represent Abe cause he is another party leader joining Abe’s co-op government with own political stance. Both countries are famed to stab each other’s back after exchanging nice words.

As opposed to China’s aggressive posturing and territorial intrusions/provocations. Wich are of course, identical to the aggressive techniques China employs with almost all of it’s other neighbors. The only difference being if it had been the Philippines or Vietnam, China would already have troops and/or naval assets on/near the islands… as evidenced in Panatag, Mischief, Paracel, Spratlys etc.. etc.. etc..
