On July 31, former Liberal Democratic Party Secretary-General Shigeru Ishiba met with Chinese Ambassador to Japan Kong Xuanyou at the Diet and exchanged views on the security environment in East Asia including the situation in Hong Kong. The meeting was requested by the ambassador. The two men are said to have known each other for some time. The envoy apparently arranged the meeting to deepen his relationship with Mr. Ishiba as he is a leading “post-Abe” candidate.
