Taipei, July 21 (CNA) A group of seven Japanese lawmakers will visit Taiwan next week to hold talks with senior Taiwanese officials and scholars on Taiwan-Japan security issues, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) announced Thursday.

The delegation -- led by Shigeru Ishiba and Yasukazu Hamada, both former defense ministers -- will also include former deputy defense chiefs Akihisa Nakashima and Shu Watanabe, as well as ex-Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara, according to MOFA.

During their four-day visit, the delegation will meet with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), Vice President Lai Ching-te (賴清德), Foreign Minister Joseph Wu (吳釗燮), and other senior government officials, MOFA said.

They will also pay visits to the Executive Yuan, Legislative Yuan, the Ministry of National Defense, and local think tanks to exchange views with officials and scholars on Taiwan-Japan security issues, it added.
