Foreign Policy News Pivots to Asia

After a week in Japan with local political and policy experts, it’s clear foreign policy news and challenges have shifted to Asia. A small sample of news stories (print papers are still very powerful in Japan) highlighted a few of the hottest issues.

  • “China’s exports plunge – trade worries grow”
  • “Xi still in charge, ardent nationalist and foreign policy hawk”
  • “US pushes Pyongyang to explain rebirth of rocket site”
  • “Trump demands full cost of troops stationed in Asia plus 50%
