Sunday’s Mainichi reported that a planned visit to Japan later this month by Chinese Communist Party Politburo member Yang may be postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak. The paper wrote that since Yang’s trip was for the purpose of laying the groundwork for Xi’s state visit in early April, the Chinese leader’s trip may also be put off. According to the daily, it has also become uncertain whether Foreign Minister Wang will be able to go ahead with an envisaged trip to Japan in March for the same purpose. The daily said if China postpones the planned opening of the People’s National Congress in early March, Xi’s Japan trip may be canceled at the last minute.
