Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will hold separate talks with about 50 foreign dignitaries when they attend a ceremony proclaiming the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito later this month, government sources said Wednesday.

Abe will meet the guests over four days from Oct. 21, with the exception of Oct. 22, when the enthronement will take place at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. He plans to meet more than 10 guests a day in what will be a marathon session of talks.
