Most papers reported that Prime Minister Abe will depart today on a trip to the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Australia, explaining that his foremost goals are to reaffirm mutual naval security cooperation with the aim of holding China’s maritime advancement in check and to ensure diplomatic coordination in preparation for the inauguration of the Trump administration, which may not maintain the departing Obama administration’s rebalance-to-Asia initiative.
