U.S. House Speaker Pelosi Arrives in Japan

   Tokyo, Aug. 4 (Jiji Press)--U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is on a tour of Asia, arrived at the U.S. military's Yokota base in western Tokyo late on Thursday.
   On Friday, she is scheduled to hold talks with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Hiroyuki Hosoda, speaker of Japan's House of Representatives, respectively, according to the Foreign Ministry.
   Before meeting Hosoda, Pelosi is likely to visit a plenary meeting of the lower chamber, Jiji Press learned Thursday.
   At the plenary meeting, Hosoda will read a message of condolence for the late former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was shot to death during an election campaign speech in the western city of Nara on July 8.
