Sankei front-paged a MOFA plan to create in FY2022 a new senior portfolio tasked exclusively with dealing with international human rights issues, saying that the diplomat to be assigned to the post in the Foreign Policy Bureau will handle such issues as human rights violations in Xinjiang. “Human rights issues in the global community are growing more complex and extensive,” said an unnamed senior MOFA official. “It is urgently necessary for Japan to strengthen its human rights diplomacy.”
