Wen: Japan Trip 'Most Important Task' so Far in Office

Noted, from Howard French’s piece today (emphasis mine):

In reality, [Chinese Primier] Wen [Jiabao], too, mostly sticks closely to the script – a fact that he himself revealed in an unusually candid discussion of his preparation for the Japan trip. “This is the most important task since I took office,” he told an audience of Chinese residents in Japan. “I did a lot of preparation. Every sentence is written by myself, and I did all the research work myself.

“Why? Because I feel our nation’s development has reached a critical moment. We need to have a peaceful and conducive international environment.”
