All national dailies wrote on Monday that Foreign Minister Hayashi said on a TV program on Sunday that his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi invited him to visit China during their telephone conversation on Nov. 18. Hayashi added, however, that nothing has been decided and no arrangements for a visit are being made at this stage. On the possibility of a U.S. diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics in Beijing in February, Hayashi said that the GOJ will make its own decision on the matter. 


Nikkei wrote that if a trip to China by Hayashi is realized, it will be the first visit to the nation by a Japanese foreign minister since December 2019 and the first in-person meeting between Japanese and Chinese foreign ministers since the one held in November 2020 in Tokyo.
