We prove that the set of common fixed points of a given countable family of relatively nonexpansive mappings is identical to the fixed-point set of a single strongly relatively nonexpansive mapping. This answers Kohsaka and Takahashi's question in positive. We also introduce the concept of strongly generalized nonexpansive mappings and prove the analogue version of the result above for Ibaraki-Takahashi's generalized nonexpansive mappings. The duality theorem for two classes of strongly relatively nonexpansive mappings and of strongly generalized nonexpansive mappings is proved.
