A Japanese lawmaker, Keiji Furuya, met with Taiwan President-elect Lai Ching-te to congratulate him on his election victory and express hope for stronger cooperation between Taiwan and Japan. Lai expressed his deep feelings for Taiwan-Japan cooperation and emphasized the potential for economic collaboration. Furuya also met with President Tsai Ing-wen and pledged Japan’s support for maintaining peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait. However, the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo expressed dissatisfaction and opposition to Japan’s congratulatory message to Lai, citing interference with China’s internal affairs and the one-China principle. China considers Taiwan a renegade province and opposes official exchanges between Taiwan and countries with diplomatic relations with China. Beijing urged Tokyo to refrain from disrupting peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait and China-Japan relations.
