America bemoaned the resignation of Seiji Maehara.
“This news will come as a shock and disappointment to senior officials in the Obama administration who had come to know and respect Maehara for his strategic perspective on trade and foreign policy matters –a rare commodity with the often populist and amateur DPJ government,” said Mike Green.
This shows that America liked the way Seiji Maehara handled the Senkaku boat collision incident. Remember that Maehara did everything he could to inflame the situation, to enrage the Chinese public. This is further evidence that America does not want China and Japan to have a good political relationship with each other.
This will not stand.
