Abe plans Australia trip to bolster Indo-Pacific alliance

November visit to coincide with APEC and take leader to Darwin

TOKYO/SYDNEY -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering a visit to Australia in November to meet with counterpart Malcolm Turnbull, Nikkei has learned. 

Such a visit would strengthen cooperation toward Tokyo's goal of a "free and open" Indo-Pacific, a plan proposed by Abe in 2016, that would bring together the democratic nations of the U.S., Japan, Australia and India, as China's regional influence rises.
