Still, Tokyo remains cautious about joining the United States, Britain and the European Union among other democracies in imposing sanctions on individuals and groups involved in the coup, partly because of Japan's close economic ties with Myanmar and China's rising influence on Myanmar and other ASEAN member states.

It's time for Japan to take a stance in the name of democracy!!! If Japan truly wants to be a part of international pro democratic society!!!

Looks to me like they are according to the article. Good for Japan in not legitimizing the military backed govt.

Freeze out all Myanmar military appointees world-wide. As trade contracts end, do not renew.

Visa for Myanmar military junta diplomats? Well, they are just only all reserved for the soon incoming Kabul islamists, djihadists & terrorists. Those are more clever and already managed to dress more civilian. lol

Japan need to accept those Afghans who worked for the Japanese embassy. They will be few in numbers. There are more than 100,000 Muslims here and five mosques. They can fit in after a period of adjustment.

The refusal of the Myanmar visas is good.

Very strong and assertive move Japan. Great to see that.
