Abe's visit to China from Oct 25 to 27 is at the invitation of Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Abe will meet Li and other Chinese leaders for talks, and they are expected to exchange views on improving and developing bilateral ties and on global and regional issues of common concern.

They will also hold a reception marking the 40th anniversary of the signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship and a forum on third-party market cooperation between the two countries.

In sending a ritual offering to a controversial war shrine on Wednesday, Abe cast a shadow over the coming visit and jeopardized the warming of Sino-Japanese relationship, experts said.
