Kishida Confirms Cooperation with Aso, Motegi for Stable Govt

Kishida Confirms Cooperation with Aso, Motegi for Stable Govt

   Tokyo, Nov. 22 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday met with Liberal Democratic Party Vice President Taro Aso and Secretary-General Toshimitsu Motegi to confirm close cooperation ahead of an extraordinary parliamentary session in December.
   Kishida had Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno attend the lunch meeting in Tokyo, apparently in hopes that Matsuno will serve as a mediator between the government and the ruling LDP.
   The meeting, held at the proposal of Kishida, went on for about an hour at a Japanese restaurant in a hotel near the LDP's headquarters.
   The four talked about how Diet deliberations should proceed over the large-scale economic measures adopted by the government Friday.
   Last week, Kishida met twice with Aso and Motegi. Talks among the four government and LDP leaders "are likely to be held regularly," one of the attendees said.
