GOJ to send official to Takeshima Day ceremony on Feb. 22

NHK reported online that National Public Safety Commissioner Okonogi, who is in charge of territorial issues, announced today that Parliamentary Secretary Yoshiaki Wada from the Cabinet Office will attend this year’s Takeshima Day ceremony to be held in Matsue, Shimane, on Feb. 22. The network said Shimane Prefecture marks Feb. 22 as “Takeshima Day” and holds a ceremony every year. The network added that the GOJ has been sending a GOJ official to the ceremony every year since the launch of the second Abe Cabinet in an effort to clarify Japan’s position on the Takeshima Islands, and the Suga administration has decided to follow suit.
