Yomiuri reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga commented on Thursday on Iran’s announcement regarding its resumption of uranium enrichment. Suga told the press: “Precisely because it is very severe, we would like to play a role in this situation which involves the United States, which is our ally, and Iran, which has maintained friendly ties with us for decades.” The daily interpreted the remark to mean that Tokyo hopes to continue to mediate between the two adversaries, adding that Japan is set to press Tehran to exercise restraint when Iranian Vice Foreign Minister Araghchi visits Tokyo in early December.
