Saturday’s Asahi, Yomiuri, and Sankei reported that the LDP decided to forgo adopting a resolution condemning China’s human rights abuses in the Xinjiang district and Hong Kong during the current Diet session. LDP policy chief Takaichi and senior members of a parliamentary league on Xinjiang and human rights diplomacy informed reporters of this on Friday after meeting with LDP Secretary General Motegi. Yomiuri said although Takaichi, former LDP policy chief Shimomura, and others had called on Motegi to adopt such a resolution during the current extraordinary Diet session, Motegi said now is not the right time because attention is focused on whether Japan will send official representatives to the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics.
