– A person who has something to say about everything

Democratic Party Secretary-General Koshi’ishi Azuma met former Prime Minister Hatoyama Yukio at a Tokyo restaurant to ask for his cooperation in stemming the tide of defections of DPJ Diet members. He also sounded out Mr. Hatoyama about restoring him to his former position as Supreme Advisor to the party, from which he was suspended after voting against the DPJ government’s tax increase legislation.

Said Mr. Hatoyama:

“I’ll return if you create an environment for firmly dealing with foreign policy problems.”


“I’m worried about relations with China. It depends on whether you allow me to have the responsibility for properly dealing with foreign policy disputes.”
