Nikkei wrote that Prime Minister Suga commented on China’s new coast guard law during a Lower House Budget Committee session on Wednesday by saying that the law includes provisions that are questionable from the viewpoint of consistency with international law. Suga added that the law should not infringe on the interests of Japan or those of other nations and that Japan will continue to express its strong concern to China. The premier made the remarks in response to a question from an opposition lawmaker, who insisted that Tokyo should tell Beijing that the legislation runs counter to international law.
