Suga comments on President Trump’s planned visit to Japan

NHK reported at noon that the cabinet endorsed a plan to invite President Trump as a “distinguished guest on an official working visit” for three days from Nov. 5 to 7, quoting Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga as telling reporters this morning: “President Trump’s visit to Japan presents a great opportunity to discuss various issued faced by the international community amid the increasingly tough security environment in the region, including North Korea, and once again demonstrate to the world the strong ties of the U.S.-Japan alliance.” In response to a question from a reporter that some are pointing out that it will be problematic from the viewpoint of crisis management for the two leaders to play golf amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Suga responded by saying: “The environment is extremely severe, but it is also extremely important for them to deepen their friendship while ensuring crisis management.”
