On this episode of China Is Not Our Enemy, Jodie Evans, will be joined by Rob Kajiwara, founder of Peace for Okinawa Coalition 琉球和平联盟. The relations between China and the Okinawa are peaceful and cooperative. Rob will be illustrating this relationship with facts and personal anecdotes through his work.
