PM Kishida to meet with Pope Francis, deliver speech during European tour 

Friday’s Yomiuri wrote that arrangements are underway for Prime Minister Kishida to hold talks with Pope Francis when he visits Rome on May 4, projecting that the two officials are likely to exchange views on abolishing nuclear arms. This will be the first visit to the Vatican by a Japanese leader in eight years. 


Meanwhile, Monday’s Sankei said Kishida will deliver a speech in London on May 5 to explain his signature policy of seeking a “new form of capitalism.” He will also roll out Japan’s “Asia Zero Emission Community” initiative aimed at achieving decarbonization in the region.
