All national dailies wrote that Ukrainian President Zelenskyy has sounded out Japan on the possibility of him virtually delivering a speech at the Diet. According to the papers, the Ukrainian Embassy in Tokyo proposed the idea to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday. The Diet affairs committee chairpersons of both the ruling LDP and the opposition Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan agreed on Wednesday to study the proposal in a positive manner. However, the idea poses logistical and other issues because the Diet has never hosted a virtual speech by a national leader.
