I would like to respond to “Abenomics undelivered” [referring to
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe] in the Opinion section on Nov. 19 as
a Japanese citizen. Regarding the relationship with neighboring
countries, such as China and Korea, I think it is difficult to improve
our relationship with both countries if they insist upon their present
stances, because, in the case of the Senkaku Islands, which are disputed
with China, they were owned by a Japanese family, and the family sold
them to the Japanese government.
