A former leader of the Unification Church’s U.S. branch sat in on a meeting in Tokyo in 2019 between future Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, sources said.

Michael Jenkins visited Kishida, who was the ruling Liberal Democratic Party’s policy chief at the time, with Gingrich at the party’s headquarters on Oct. 4, 2019, the sources said.

Masayoshi Kajikuri, chairman of the Japanese branch of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF), a friendship organization of the church, was also present, the sources said.

Then Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who had close ties with the Unification Church, was initially scheduled to meet with the Gingrich side, government sources said.

But Abe had to deliver a policy speech in the two Diet chambers at the start of an extraordinary Diet session on the day of the meeting, so he asked Kishida to meet Gingrich in his place, they said.

The Asahi Shimbun has obtained a photo that appears to show Jenkins with Kishida, Gingrich and Kajikuri during the meeting.
