Yoshihide Suga, Japanese Prime Minister has a message for the world
In a closed-door meeting with International Olympic Committee members at a five-star hotel in Tokyo, Yoshihide Suga who is Japanese Prime Minister said the world was full of difficult situations, but they could successfully hold the Games in a good condition. So they wanted to transfer this fact from japan to the rest of the world. With the help of an interpreter, he added they would protect the health and security of the Japanese people.
Yoshihide Suga said vaccination had been started so after passing that long journey he was seeing an exit at the end of that tunnel.
