Departing Japanese envoy to Washington projects no change in U.S. policy on China 

Today’s Asahi ran an interview with Japanese Ambassador to the U.S. Sugiyama, who will depart post today. He forecast that the Biden administration will be as tough on China as the Trump administration, explaining that President Biden and most of his top associates have very critical views of Beijing. The diplomat commented on the close bonds between former Prime Minister Abe and former President Trump, praising the ex-premier for successfully correcting the bias held by Trump about the U.S.-Japan alliance.
