Japan And U.S. Heads Met To Strengthen Alliance And Join Forces Against The CCP

Foreign media reported that U.S. President Joe Biden met with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida at the White House on January 13, local time. President Biden said the U.S. strongly supports Japan’s defense policy and is firmly committed to the alliance with Japan while welcoming the historic increase in Japanese defense spending. President Biden also pledged to work closely with Japan on economic and security matters. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said that Japan views the CCP as a strategic challenge to the peace and security of Japan and the peace and stability of the international community.

 Japan is currently the rotating chair of the G7 and the visit to Washington is the last stop of Prime Minister Kishida’s current visit to the G7 countries. His trip is aimed at strengthening relations with allies to counter the threats from Beijing, Russia, and North Korea, especially in response to Beijing’s military buildup.

 The White House released a joint statement on the day of the U.S.-Japan leadership meeting. The statement said Biden and Kishida met at a historic moment and that today’s unprecedented U.S.-Japan cooperation is rooted in a shared vision of ensuring a free and open Indo-Pacific region and a peaceful and prosperous world, guided by shared values, including the rule of law. The Indo-Pacific region faces increasing challenges, from the actions of Beijing that are inconsistent with the rules-based international order to the provocative actions of North Korea.
