Special Envoy for Climate Kerry visits Japan 

Nikkei reported on U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Kerry’s arrival in Tokyo yesterday. The daily said that in addition to holding meetings with Environment Minister Koizumi, Trade and Industry Minister Kajiyama, and Foreign Minister Motegi to discuss bilateral coordination on slowing down global warming, the U.S. official will pay a courtesy call on Prime Minister Suga today. As Kerry is expected to visit China tomorrow ahead of the COP26 conference in the autumn, the business daily conjectured that Washington is eager to take a concerted line with Tokyo in encouraging Beijing to become more proactive in reducing CO2 emissions. NHK also briefly reported this morning on Special Envoy Kerry’s arrival and his planned meetings with senior GOJ officials today.
