Nikkei reported that Japanese Communist Party Chairman Shii plans to visit the U.S. from March 22 through April 1 to lobby for the conclusion of the Nuclear Weapons Convention, as the UN is expected to hold talks on the proposed international treaty around that time. Speculating that by visiting the U.S., Shii may be anxious to play up his party’s “realistic line” on the diplomatic front with possible greater election collaboration with the Democratic Party in mind, the daily claimed that he is hoping to hold meetings with U.S. members of Congress, including Senator Bernie Sanders.
