The Saturday editions of Asahi, Yomiuri, Nikkei, and Sankei reported that MOFA has decided to create in April 2022 a new position under the First China and Mongolia Division of the Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau charged with maritime and Taiwan issues. The paper said MOFA is hoping to strengthen the nation’s response to maritime issues as well as issues related to Taiwan out of concern over the possibility of a contingency in the region as the PLA is strengthening its military pressure on Taiwan. The new position will be responsible for dealing with the China Coast Guard’s intrusions into Japanese waters near the Senkakus.
