U.S., Japan weigh pledge to jointly deter China at Tokyo summit

Biden, Kishida prepare statement that includes allies' response in Indo-Pacific

TOKYO -- The Japanese and U.S. governments have begun coordinating on the wording of a joint statement to be released during their summit meeting on Monday in Tokyo, Nikkei has learned. The statement will clearly state a policy of cooperation to "deter and respond to" China's activities in the Indo-Pacific region.

The statement will also outline a policy of keeping Japan under the U.S. nuclear umbrella, and the sharing of security strategies between the two countries. The partners will confirm the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), led by U.S., and clarify Washington's involvement in Asia.
