February 16, 2020: The UK should further strengthen its relations with members of the Commonwealth. Sunday version. Dear Sirs
The United Kingdom "proclaims" "Global Britain." It is natural to strengthen relations with Japan. More importantly, we need to further strengthen our relationship with the Commonwealth member states. The UK should achieve a "target amount" of about $ 700 billion in "trade" by 2020, declared in 2018.
Part 1. Foreign Minister Raab and Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Mogi,
who came to Japan, held a strategic dialogue on February 8 in Tokyo.
The UK, which has decided to leave the EU,
has set up a strategy called "Global Britain" to deepen its relations
with non-European countries such as the Asia-Pacific.
British Foreign Minister Raab "newly" expressed his willingness to participate
in the TPP to reporters at a British embassy in Tokyo on February 8.
He emphasized, "Partially in commercial interests but also in British political involvement
in the 'Free and Open Indo-Pacific.'"

The British government will further strengthen its ties with members of the Commonwealth,
such as India and Australia.
The UK government is planning to reduce barriers to trade between “member nations”
and develop infrastructure, and by 2020 the “trade value” will grow into an “economic zone”
with a value of about $ 700 billion (75 trillion yen).
The UK government is considering lowering the EU's dependence
on the economy ahead of the European Union's withdrawal.
However, members have different attitudes on how to respond to the British Commonwealth,
It is uncertain whether the partnership will strengthen as Britain would have expected.
The British Commonwealth Summit, which will cover 53 countries and territories,
including the United Kingdom and the former colonies, began in London on the 19th.
The event will be held in the city until April 20.
Indian Prime Minister Modi, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau,
Australian Prime Minister Turnbull, as well as Prime Ministers from New Zealand,
Singapore and South Africa and more than 40 presidents participated.
Queen Elizabeth greeted them.
The United Kingdom has a future of "UK Commonwealth" with an estimated 2,328 million people in 2013.
Boris Johnson should focus more on uniting the Commonwealth than on Global Britain.
When the British Commonwealth unites, it becomes a larger group than the United States, the EU, and China.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi should demonstrate leadership as part of the Commonwealth.
I expect to unite under Queen Elizabeth.
It will continue next week.
Part 2. Please support the victims of human rights violations by the Japanese government.
The prosperity of the free world is "realized" by freedom, democracy and "rule under the law."
I am seriously seeking the "rule of law".
"Illegal punishment" of "violation of immigration law" has caused many victims in the world.
For details, see the "Send on weekdays" email.
Instruct the relevant parties to investigate.
There are many American victims.
There are also many Chinese victims.
There are also many Philippine victims.
If you have any questions, please ask a question by email.
