Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan chief Edano told reporters that he is strongly concerned that Japan is being forced to make concessions on primary commodities, Japanese Communist Party chief Shii criticized Abe for employing “shameful diplomacy,” Social Democratic Party leader Yoshikawa said he is strongly opposed to the agreement as it could deal a crushing blow to Japan’s agriculture, and Democratic Party for the People leader Tamaki said that Prime Minister Abe is insincere because the TAG negotiations are undeniably tantamount to bilateral FTA talks.
