Kishida and Hayashi appear to care little about protesters being killed in Iran. As a substitute, they’re taking photograph alternatives with Iranian political elites. Due to this fact, regardless of world protection of the mass protests in Iran – not less than 83 folks have been killed – the Kishida administration is coldly ignoring occasions regardless of their alleged issues about “the rule of worldwide legislation” and “human rights.”
