US embassy in Tokyo gets officer for Chinese affairs

WASHINGTON (Jiji Press) – The U.S. State Department plans to deploy an officer to monitor China’s problematic behavior and consider countermeasures at the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo starting in July, a department official said Saturday.

The United States will work with the Japanese government to gather more information about China’s coercive activities.

The person sent to the embassy in Tokyo will monitor and address China’s problematic activities, the department official told reporters.

The department established the Office of China Coordination, informally known as China House, to oversee U.S. policy toward China. The planned officer will work under China House.

Nearly two dozen such officers have been sent to U.S. embassies abroad, according to department data.

Information about China’s problematic behavior is shared among the agents and sent to the US government. They also work with the governments of the countries they are sent to.

The deployment of officers for Chinese affairs is one of the State Department programs launched by the administration of former US President Donald Trump, according to US media.
