Saturday morning’s Asahi carried on page 3 its one-on-one interview with Cuba’s First Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez conducted on Thursday in Tokyo, during which he expressed concern over presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Diaz-Canal, who is seen as a potential successor to President Castro, reportedly said: “President Obama said the process of normalization of diplomatic relations will not be reversed. Will this change?” The paper said Cuba apparently continues to view the U.S. as a nation that could jeopardize the regime. Diaz-Canal also expressed hope for expanded Japanese investment and strengthened ties with Japan.
