– A person who has something to say about everything

In those days, a senior member of the Foreign Ministry told me, “We have received no explanation whatsoever of the East Asian entity concept (i.e., an East Asian EU) from either (Prime Minister) Hatoyama or (Foreign Minister) Okada. When governments overseas ask us about it, there’s nothing else we can do except paste together the various statements Mr. Hatoyama has made on the subject and tell them, ‘It’s something like this.'”
