PM Kishida to travel to UK on first overseas trip  

TV Asahi reported on Monday evening that final arrangements are underway for Prime Minister Kishida to visit the UK as early as Nov. 1 on his first overseas trip as prime minister. The network said that according to a senior MOFA official, although Kishida was planning to attend the COP26 meeting slated for Nov. 1 –2 in the UK remotely because the Lower House election will be held on Oct. 31, he has decided to attend the meeting in person because coordination with the host nation did not go well. The network said the premier is expected to leave Japan on Nov. 1 and stay in the UK for a very short period.
