Beijing said in the paper that Chinese authorities have arrested nearly 13,000 “terrorists” since 2014. The paper wrote that Kono reportedly said that Japan may take up the issue for future discussions with China if necessary, but added that the issue should be discussed from the viewpoints of both antiterrorism and human rights violations.
