Tokyo: Japan said Thursday it was "disappointed" there were no signs of rapprochement in Chinese President Xi Jinping`s speech to mark the 70th anniversary of Tokyo`s WWII defeat, as Beijing showed off its growing might with a huge military parade.

"Tokyo had requested that Beijing make sure that the event was not so anti-Japanese, but instead contain elements of rapprochement between Japan and China," top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga told reporters.

"It was disappointing that such elements were not in President Xi Jinping`s speech today."
