It is incredible how some pundits perceive APEC to be, as an icebreaker between antagonists, like between China and Japan, between Russia and America, and between China and America.  Hauled together, there is more ice than really any one can break, so one has to be prepared for the opposite by the time the meeting ends.  This may be the last time that major world leaders can still look at each other in the eye, and speak their minds to one another.  

Much to China's credit, it is trying to let everyone have face, including Abe.

But honestly speaking, the number of issues that divide the congregation outnumbers the issues that unite it.  After the handshakes and photo-ops, the night falls.
