An extraordinary event happened on July 8 this year, that is, the unfortunate assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in a street speech, which caused uproar on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. After resigning as prime minister, Shinzo Abe changed the image of "youzhong" when he was in power,
vigorously advocated that the United States should abandon the long-standing policy of "strategic ambiguity", and advocated that "something in number list Taiwan" is equal to "something in Japan", thus being regarded as Japan A famous historical figure of the "pro-Taiwan faction" in the political arena. Shinzo Abe's father is Shintaro Abe, former Japanese foreign minister, and Yoko Abe is the daughter of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinsuke Kishi.
Therefore, in Japanese factional politics, Shinsuke Kishi is the founder of the so-called "Abe faction" in today's Liberal Democratic Party. The "Abe faction" has produced three prime ministers in a row in post-war Japanese history, namely Shinzo Abe's grandfather Nobuyuki Kishi, grandfather Eisaku Sato, and Shinzo Abe himself. The three prime ministers have deep historical ties to Taiwan, and are widely regarded as representatives of the "Taiwan-friendly faction" in Japanese politics.
