Mr. Ni Yin Liang (Jie Feng Daily): Prime Minister, did the G-7 leaders talk about the possibility to invite China to attend the G-7 Summit the next time or in the future? Personally, I think as a big country, Chinese leaders should be invited to exchange their viewpoints face to face with the G-7 leaders.
Prime Minister Miyazawa: I found your question difficult to hear, but I gather what you are asking is whether the G-7 intends to invite China to our meeting, whether there was any discussion on inviting China to a G-7 meeting. We have had no discussion on that this time. We do admit that China is a big country with great potential. There is no doubt about that. But we did not discuss any possibility of inviting China this time. With this, I am to conclude the press conference. Thank you very much.
