SUBJECT: TOKYO MEDIA REACTION - Chinese Communist Party
National Congress


LEAD STORIES: Top stories this morning included a
decision by Japan's largest brokerage firm Nomura
Holdings to close its US residential mortgage business.

"Can China Achieve Real Harmony?" The liberal Tokyo
Shimbun editorialized (10/16): "...Regarding foreign
policy, Chinese President Hu Jintao stated during the
opening on Monday of the Communist Party's National
Congress that China will work hand in hand with the
people of foreign nations to build a peaceful,
prosperous, and harmonious world. However, Hu warned
Taiwan that no form of independence can be allowed and
hinted at the use of force. Japan fully understands and
respects Beijing's claim that Taiwan is part of China.
However, Taiwan has achieved democracy, and its people
directly elect their president and legislators. Freedom
of speech and freedom of the press are ensured there.
China's neighbors would not accept any move by Beijing
to use force in defiance of the will of the Taiwanese
people, regardless of the reason. Winning international
confidence in its idea of a 'harmonious world' will
depend on how China deals with Taiwan."
