Yomiuri wrote that it has learned from several GOJ sources that Foreign Minister Kono is making arrangements to visit Iran in mid-October. If the visit is realized, it will be Kono’s first trip to Iran as foreign minister and the first visit by a Japanese foreign minister since October 2015. The paper speculated that Kono is planning to express Japan’s support for the Iranian government’s continued implementation of the Iran nuclear deal during talks with Foreign Minister Zarif, and call on Tehran to respond calmly to the United States’ expected resumption of sanctions in early November.
