CCS Suga to depart for U.S. tomorrow

Sankei published a prominent inside-page article on Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga’s plan to visit the U.S. starting tomorrow, saying that while in Washington he will be meeting with Secretary of State Pompeo, Acting Defense Secretary Shanahan, and Vice President Pence. Claiming that the U.S. is apparently prepared to roll out the red carpet for Suga, who plans to make his “diplomatic debut” with the upcoming U.S. tour, the daily speculated that although his clout has grown rapidly on the domestic political front, his foreign policy expertise is still untested. The paper projected that Suga will hold in-depth discussions with the U.S. officials on such key issues as North Korea’s denuclearization, the abductions, and Okinawa military bases. Mainichi ran a similar story.
