Sankei front-paged a report on an announcement by the Department of State on Monday that it will host a meeting of foreign ministers from nations participating in the “coalition of the willing” against ISIS in Washington on Nov. 14 in response to the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The paper wrote that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told reporters on Tuesday that at this stage, he would like to refrain from commenting on the possibility of Japan’s participation. The paper noted that although Japan is not participating in the coalition’s military operations, as a coalition member it has provided humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees and the Japanese Embassy in Washington has participated in coalition meetings.
