Sankei wrote that LDP lawmaker Furuya Keiji, who heads the Japan-Republic of China Diet Members’ Consultative Council, is making arrangements to visit Taiwan on Aug. 22-24. The paper wrote that Furuya is planning to hold talks with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and defense officials there to reaffirm Japan’s solidarity with the island territory. This will be the first time for Furuya to visit Taiwan since he attended a memorial service for the late Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui in September 2020. The paper noted that the council has served as a channel between Japan and Taiwan, which have no diplomatic relations, and that former Prime Minister Abe had been an advisor to the group.
