Suga under fire for not issuing message over attack on Capitol

Kyodo News reported that during a meeting of the LDP’s Foreign Affairs Division today, many said Prime Minister Suga should have issued a clear message concerning Trump supporters’ storming of the Capitol. The members reportedly said a message should come from the top, citing many European leaders who criticized the attack on social media. Kyodo added that although MOFA is of the view that Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato made remarks on the incident at a press briefing on behalf of the Japanese government, many participants expressed displeasure, with some asserting that MOFA should have prepared a statement.
