LDP calls for resumption of travel to and from Taiwan 

Saturday’s Mainichi wrote that the ruling LDP decided on Friday to ask the Abe administration to consider adding Taiwan to the four nations – Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, and Thailand – with  which it plans to resume reciprocal travel in the summer given that the island region has been just as successful as them in combating the novel coronavirus.   


In a related story, Sunday’s Sankei reported that in late May the Taiwanese government donated some 50,000 items of personal protective equipment to a Japanese parliamentary group promoting bilateral relations for distribution to healthcare providers and firefighters. As Taipei also donated some 2 million face masks to Japan in April, the daily said LDP officials were very grateful for Taiwan’s generosity.
