Japanese PM to postpone US trip on virus worries - report

Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida (pictured right) will have to delay his visit to the United States until 2022, Japan Broadcasting Corporation, also known as NHK, reported on Saturday.

The reason for the postponement is the spread of the coronavirus' Omicron variant, as well as Kishida's obligations tied to the country's budget for the following fiscal year, the outlet explained.

"Regarding the possibility of a visit, it is necessary to take into account many factors, including the situation in the United States," Kishida previously noted.
