Japanese Friends of Taiwan lawmakers group rallies with U.S. minister in Japan for the first time

The Japan-China Parliamentarians’ Association (JCPA), a group of Japanese-Taiwanese parliamentarians, held its annual meeting at a Tokyo hotel today, and in addition to inviting Representative Hsieh Chang-ting to Japan, Nicholas M.

Hill) was also invited to attend the meeting, the first Time the U.S. diplomats to attend the Japan-China plea rally, to show the importance of Taiwan by concrete action.

For the first time the U.S. side sent a minister to attend the meeting, Japan-China President Keiji Furuya explained the background in the post-meeting press conference, pointing out that U.S. Secretary of State Blinken recently held a high-level strategic dialogue with China’s Yang Jiechi and others, and the tit-for-tat situation between the two sides can be said to be more than expected.

Furuya said that Japan-China pleaded that Japan, the United States and Taiwan also need to conduct a strategic dialogue, so he asked the U.S. Embassy in Japan for its intention, and later the U.S. Chief Minister in Japan received approval from the U.S. State Department to attend, and Furuya thought that the scope of the U.S.-Japan-Taiwan strategic dialogue could perhaps be expanded.

Furuya said that the first U.S.-Japan-Taiwan Strategic Dialogue, originally scheduled for May last year, was cancelled due to the Epidemic, and is expected to be held online this year after the May break.

The meeting was attended by 68 members of The Japanese Diet, who adopted the resolution “Basic Policy for the Year 2021” and handed it to Hsieh Chang-ting to express their support for Taiwan’s participation in the World health Organization (WHO), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). “The meeting was attended by 68 members of the Japanese Diet, who passed a resolution on the “Basic Policy for the Year 2021” and handed it to Hsieh Chang-ting, expressing support for Taiwan’s participation in the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the CPTPP.
