TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Australian counterpart Anthony Albanese will look to sign a new bilateral declaration on security cooperation during a meeting in Perth this week, reworking a 15-year-old document in light of China's growing assertiveness.

"We will sit down face to face and discuss urgent bilateral issues such as security, energy and food," Kishida said Monday in a meeting with top members of his ruling Liberal Democratic Party. "We'll cooperate to further our security and economic strategy," he said.
