On NHK’s “Nichiyo Toron” Sunday debate show, senior Upper House lawmakers from the ruling and opposition parties discussed the issues slated for deliberation during the current ordinary Diet session that has been extended until July 22. The opposition panelists expressed objections to the legislation on work-style reform and the bill on the implementation of integrated resorts with casinos. The participants also discussed the results of the U.S.-DPRK summit in Singapore. All the panelists, including those from the opposition camp, welcomed that the historic summit produced positive results toward the denuclearization of North Korea. However, some of the opposition discussants expressed dissatisfaction by saying that Japan has little presence in the ongoing international efforts to denuclearize the DPRK.
