Japan, U.S. should strengthen cooperation on global challenges

They must address China concerns while not neglecting trade, development

In their virtual summit, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and U.S. President Joe Biden confirmed their continued cooperation in addressing regional and economic issues. This is welcome news. With China, Russia and North Korea all raising tensions in different regions, the U.S. will have difficulty tackling the mounting foreign policy challenges by itself. Stronger cooperation between Tokyo and Washington will help promote global stability.

Kishida had hoped for an early visit to the U.S., but the COVID-19 situation and political conditions meant he had to settle for an online meeting with Biden instead.
