E.O. 12958: DECL: 07/20/2019
TAGS: PGOV PINR PREL JA
SUBJECT: ASSISTANT SECRETARY CAMPBELL MEETING WITH MOFA
DEPUTY VICE MINISTER BESSHO

Classified By: CHARGE D’AFFAIRES a.i. JAMES P. ZUMWALT, REASONS 1.4(B)
AND (D).

¶1. (S) Summary: Over a 17 July lunch, EAP Assistant Secretary
Kurt Campbell and Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) Deputy
Vice-Minister for Foreign Policy Koro Bessho engaged on
Russian interests in Asia, discussed greater Indian
involvement in East Asia, and reviewed China-Taiwan
relations. End Summary.

¶2. (S) Noting that the Northern Territories issue remained
“”stuck,”” Bessho said that Japan did not see any real progress
from Russia on the matter. He said, however, that Japan and
Russia have had only “”occasional”” discussions on the islands
and that detailed talks have not been held. Bessho said
Japan may have to accept the status quo for now. Bessho
further wondered about Russia’s intentions in Asia, given
recent interest in participating in multilateral fora such as
ASEM and EAS. He noted, however, that U.S.-Japan-Russia
trilateral discussions would be useful. A/S Campbell hoped
Russia’s interests in Asia extended beyond a simple desire
for deeper ties with China. Rapprochement with Japan is
essential, he added

India
—–

¶3. (S) A/S Campbell said it was necessary to have India more
engaged in East Asia and indicated a willingness to discuss
Bessho’s suggestion for a possible Track 1 trilateral
dialogue between the U.S., Japan, and India. Campbell
proposed a possible policy planning staff-level discussion as
another option.

————
China/Taiwan
————

¶4. (S) On Taiwan, Embassy Tokyo Political Minister-Counselor
said Taiwan’s leadership was focused on expanding commercial
and transportation links between Taiwan and the PRC. The PRC
does not want to fight over the Taiwan situation and doubted
there was much risk towards relationship problems in the next
few years. POL M/C noted, however, that Taiwan would likely
ask the U.S. to sell F-16s to Taiwan and that this could
potentially impact cross-strait relations. In spite of this,
though, a change to the status quo was unlikely, POL M/C
added.
