Japan, US and Australia must strengthen cooperation on China

Japan's foreign and security policy under Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has begun in earnest, marked by two key events: the Japan-Australia leaders' summit on Jan. 6, followed the next day by the two-plus-two meeting of Japanese and U.S. foreign and defense ministers.

We hope Japan uses this new momentum to deepen its cooperation with like-minded allies Australia and the U.S. and quickly lay out a comprehensive strategy for regional stability.
