Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato responded appropriately to the fact that the player who had come to Japan as a representative of Myanmar for the second qualifying round of the Soccer World Cup Asia indicated his intention to apply for refugee status in Japan. I showed my idea to go.

Goalkeeper Pie Lian Aung, who had come to Japan for the second qualifying round of the Soccer World Cup Asia, refused to return from Kansai Airport on the night of the 16th and left the team to apply for refugee status in Japan. I showed my intention to do it.



Regarding this, Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato said at a press conference in the morning, "I am aware of the news, but I would like to refrain from commenting on the procedures for immigration and residence of individuals."



In response to the situation in Myanmar, the Immigration Bureau of Japan has taken urgent measures since last month to allow Myanmar people who wish to stay in Japan to stay for up to one year. Regarding this soccer player, I would like to take appropriate measures while listening to his intentions. "
