The governor of China's central bank has pulled out of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank meetings being held in Japan.

The move comes amid an ongoing territorial dispute between the two countries.

Relations between the two soured after Japan said it had purchased disputed islands in the East China Sea claimed by both Tokyo and Beijing.
