Sankei said the GOJ has decided to replace Ambassador to South Korea Nagamine with Japan’s G20 sherpa, Ambassador Tomoita, noting that Nagamine is expected to step down shortly after almost a three-year stint in Seoul. Tomita was reportedly based in the ROK capital as a minister counselor almost 15 years ago before assuming such portfolios as the director general of the North American Affairs Bureau and Ambassador to Israel. Mainichi ran a similar story, adding that the GOJ has already requested the ROK grant its agrément to Tomoita’s appointment.
