CCS Suga says counterterrorism to be on agenda for G20 Summit in light of New Zealand shootings

TBS reported this afternoon that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga stated at a news conference today that in light of the New Zealand mosque shootings last week, Japan, as the host of the G20 Osaka Summit, is determined to cooperate closely with the other G20 nations in fighting terrorism and hold discussions on counterterrorism at the summit. He also revealed that Prime Minister Abe received a letter from Australian Prime Minister Morrison asking for discussions to be held at the summit on regulating social media, asserting that it must not be used by terrorists or for hate speech. Suga refrained from taking a stand on this issue.
