There is a long discussion with China , Jason Bourn and Sean Connery. I plumb for Jason , the valley will still make money and so will the rest of the villains until they are dead. life goes on and news will make the headlines.

Not enough space in detention to hold all the Chinese doing the same around the world.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Japan did not engage in espionage against any country.

And if you believe that, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell to you

This is why I will never set foot in the PRC. I have been politically involved in the US and love freedom, respect human rights, and have spoken up about it. Who would ever put their life at risk of being a fly where the dictatorship is a huge flyswatter. Nope. Never. Until the regime is put 6 feet under. Same goes for Japanese citizens thinking of visiting the PRC; why be a pawn in a rigged game, when its time for the regime to whip up some anti Japanese hatred. Nope. Guam is safer for a little vacation.

China do not give death sentence easily

The People's Republic of China executes the highest number of people annually,

Better check your facts. China executes more people per year than any other country. When your time is up, they take you outside and shoot you in the back of the head

Don't go to China. Don't go to NK. Don't go to Iran, et al.considered as dangerous and on the list sent out monthly by local consulates.(Sign up is available at the web site.) If you want to save people in one way or another, try saving your family's future, stay home. There are brave spies and there are old spies. There are no brave, old spies. The USA passport as well as the Japanese passport application needs a box to check: "I understand that by going to any country on any list that is considered dangerous to my country I forfeit my right to ask my government to assist, negotiate on my behalf, or make any attempt to rescue me."

"When asked whether he was suspected of spying, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Japan did not engage in espionage against any country."

Why deny the obvious? This is not the first time, so it looks silly to deny spying that have being ongoing for a while. Even friendly countries spy on each other. Israel spy on US and vice versa. There is no shame to admit the truth.

....on any list that is considered dangerous to my country...

I don't think China is on a list like that, are they? https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings.html

I'm guessing I need an inigma machine to decipher your post as it makes zero intelligible sense to me in its current form.

Sure. It's called the 'third degree burn'.

what about the economic drain that the Chinese are imposing on other countries around the world by draining resources like locusts and supported by the CCCP, yet Japan and other countries are not harassing China's citizens as the tourist money they bring is a loss in the first place and a drain on economic resources which is more costly.

Shouldn't that be , Third degree 'Chinese' burn?

Spy vs Spy. The fate of any captured spy is their country will deny they existed. That is the cardinal rule of the game.

In China, eating a soup of noodles, watching birds, or waiting for the bus, "endanger national security".

Well, we don't know the guy's name, what he's accused of doing, or how one 50 year-old was able to endanger national security, but really, it seems to portray Chinese security as being very weak if a middle age man can disrupt it.

I guess this is why we've never visited mainland China, even when we were close and lived in Japan for some years. Though I have had and have now many good, good students and friends form the mainland, and they have oft invited us to come and visit, we likely won't `til things change over there, as far as their form of government is concerned. We won't be holding our breath nor waiting by the phone in anticipation...
