Opposition party leader meets with officials of LGBT groups in Washington

Yomiuri reported that Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan leader Edano held a series of meetings in Washington on Tuesday with officials of NGOs focusing on LGBT issues and women’s empowerment, explaining that the chief representative of Japan’s largest opposition party was keen to call attention to his party’s goal of accepting sexual minorities and people with different values so as to play up the differences between his party and the ruling LDP. The daily said that through his trip to the U.S. capital, Edano is hoping to learn about “grassroots politics” in America, noting that he also plans to hold talks with Senator Sanders.    

 

Sankei wrote that the CDPJ leader met with former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Zumwalt and told him that Japan should deepen its alliance relationship with the U.S.
