Suga says Japan, China “not at the stage” of arranging Xi’s visit to Japan

NHK reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told the press today that Japan is not at the stage of arranging a specific date for Chinese leader Xi’s postponed visit to Japan by saying that “the most important thing at this point is to bring the outbreak under control.” The network said that while the Chinese leader’s visit was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, the LDP’s foreign affairs division has drawn up a resolution condemning China and calling on the GOJ to take a careful approach in response to China’s decision to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Suga reportedly said: “Japan and China will continue to communicate on Chinese leader Xi’s visit to Japan while assessing the overall situation. The most important thing at this point is to bring the outbreak under control, and we are not at the stage of arranging a specific date.” In addition, Suga reportedly said: “We have various issues with China. It is important for us to continue to claim what needs to be claimed at summit meetings, resolve issues one by one, and strongly call for China to respond positively.”
