Press Conference by the Chief Cabinet Secretary (Excerpt)

[Provisional Translation]

Q&As

(Abridged)

REPORTER: I have a question regarding the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by President Trump of the United States. The Nikkei stock average decreased more than 500 points at one point, as investors sold stocks in succession amid concerns over turmoil in the Middle East. The Government of the United States has still not made a formal announcement, but we are already seeing concerns rise to the surface. What is your view regarding this situation?

CHIEF CABINET SECRETARY SUGA: Firstly, I am not aware of how stock prices have fallen. In any event, as the Government of the United States has yet to make a formal announcement, I believe the Government of Japan should not be making any comments.
