Regarding Ambassador Hisahiko Okazaki’s April 30 article “Entente to balance China“: Perhaps Okizaki’s essay makes sense in its original Japanese. But its English translation comes across as muddled, disjointed ramblings. The only clear theme is his anti-China bias, which is consistent with some of his other writings. In this regard, China and the rest of Asia should worry that Okazaki is reportedly a senior adviser to Prime Minister Abe Shinzo.
