TOKYO -- U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's focus on international cooperation and alliances appears to have struck a chord with the Japanese public, a Nikkei/TV Tokyo poll finds, as more respondents expect better or similar bilateral ties than after the election of President Donald Trump.

An improvement in Japan-U.S. relations under the Biden administration was forecast by 18% of respondents, and another 66% expect no change. Just 8% said ties would worsen.
