On November 18, local time, Japan’s new Minister of Foreign Affairs Lin Fangzheng held the first telephone conversation with the Chinese Communist Party’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
According to data, Lin Fangzheng was appointed as Japan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs on November 10 and resigned from the post of chairman of the Japan-China Friendship Parliamentary Alliance on the second day. In the telephone conversation with Wang Yi, Lin Fangzheng mainly expressed Japan’s deep concern about the Senkaku Islands, the situation in the East China Sea and the South China Sea, and the human rights issues in Hong Kong and Xinjiang. At the same time, Lin Fangzheng emphasized the importance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. Lin Fangzheng also proposed that he hoped that the CCP would lift the import restrictions on Japanese food as soon as possible.
Analysts pointed out that the talks reflected that the new Japanese government, even the Minister of Foreign Affairs who is a Chinese faction, still continued the previous government’s hardline attitude towards the CCP, and failed to be as weak as the CCP expected to seek peace.
