Raymond Greene to be tapped as chargé d’affaires in Tokyo

Kyodo claimed that the U.S. government has decided to name American Institute in Taiwan Deputy Director Raymond Greene as chargé d’affaires of the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo when the post is vacated by incumbent Joseph Young in the near future. According to multiple sources involved in U.S.-Japan relations, Greene is expected to take up the post in July. Noting that the American diplomat has gained extensive knowledge on Japan by serving multiple tours there, including as consul general in Naha, the report said the appointment is aimed at further strengthening bilateral coordination to step up the pressure on China. “It will convey to China a message of U.S.-Japan unity,” a USG source was quoted as saying. An unnamed senior MOFA official reportedly underscored that Greene will facilitate bilateral coordination in supporting Taiwan.
