Kishida greets President Biden without wearing mask

Yomiuri wrote that when greeting and holding talks with President Biden on Monday, Prime Minister Kishida chose not to cover his face with a mask, conjecturing that the premier defied the government recommendation for face coverings when conversing with others at close distances in order to deepen the relationship of mutual trust with the U.S. leader by showing his face. “It is important to be able to see foreign dignitaries’ expressions while holding talks with them,” a source close to the premier said.
