GOJ pins hope on “President Clinton”

Yomiuri wrote that there are expectations among GOJ officials for Hillary Clinton’s leadership and foreign policy placing importance on the U.S.-Japan alliance if she is elected president. Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga stated at a press briefing on Tuesday that Japan will continue to closely watch developments in the election because it will have a major impact on the international community. An unnamed senior MOFA official said that the U.S.-Japan alliance will be strengthened further if Hillary Clinton becomes the next president, but the alliance could be shaken if Donald Trump wins because he has suggested a review of the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty and the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Japan.
