报导:日本和中国解决东海油气争端 Report: Japan and China Settle East China Sea Gas Feud

16 June, 2008

日本一个新闻报导说,日本和中国已经达成妥协,同意联合开发有争议东海海域的油气田并分享利润。共同社的报导今天(星期一)援引一名接近中日会谈的消息人士的话说,预计双方最早本星期将宣布有关协议。

日本政府发言人今天证实,双方目前正在就有关协议进行谈判,有关细节还有待最后敲定。中国外交部没有立即就报导的这项协议发表评论。

A Japanese media report says Japan and China have reached a compromise and agreed to jointly develop gas fields and share profits in disputed areas of the East China Sea. A Kyodo news agency report today (Monday) cites sources close to the ongoing talks who say the two sides are expected to announce the deal as early as this week. 

A spokesman for the Japanese government confirmed today that a deal was in the works, but says details of the deal are still being finalized. China's Foreign Ministry did not have any immediate comment on the reported deal.
