Katsuya Okada, who is the secretary-general of the Cadet Democratic Party, also had a similar question when he questioned the same budget committee in October.

He also said that the United States has stated that it does not support Taiwan's independence and asked Kishida to make it clear.

In response to repeated pressure from members of the opposition party to declare that they do not support Taiwan independence, Kishida stood up when answering questions, saying, "What kind of wording is used in diplomacy is very important.
