Kishida unlikely to travel to U.S. in January

Saturday’s Nikkei and Yomiuri wrote that Prime Minister Kishida has concluded that it would be difficult to arrange a summit with President Biden in January due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant in the U.S. and the Biden administration’s preoccupation with enacting the Build Back Better bill.

According to today’s Yomiuri, PM Kishida has also decided to forego traveling to New York in early January to attend the NPT Review conference due to the rise in Omicron infections in the U.S. Instead, he will deliver remarks remotely to highlight his lifelong commitment to nuclear disarmament.
