Japan to Replace Envoys to U.S., S.Korea, Yomiuri Says

The Japanese government plans to appoint Kenichiro Sasae, vice-minister for foreign affairs, as ambassador to the U.S., the Yomiuri newspaper reported.

Japan also plans to replace its envoy to South Korea with Koro Bessho, deputy minister for foreign affairs, according to the report, which didn’t cite anyone.

The Yomiuri earlier reported Japan may name Shinichi Nishimiya, deputy minister for foreign affairs in charge of economy, as ambassador to China, replacing Uichiro Niwa.
