Yomiuri highlighted MOFA’s plan to set up an embassy in Kiribati and a consular office in New Caledonia in FY2022 in order to monitor closely China’s rapid advancement in the South Pacific. As French troops are stationed in Nouméa, the GOJ is hoping that the presence of Japanese diplomats there will help strengthen bilateral defense coordination in view of France’s intention to play a greater role in achieving a free and open Indo-Pacific.
