Former Soviet Union President and Nobel Price winner Mikhail Gorbachev has cancelled his trip to Okinawa that was scheduled to take place Nov. 7.

Gorbachev was to be a special guest at a panel discussion titled “Reflecting the future of East Asia and Okinawa with Gorbachev.”

According to a spokesman for the Gorbachev Foundation, in which the 82-year-old former president is the chairman, his trip to Okinawa has been canceled due to a prolonged health examination at a hospital in Munich, Germany.
