Security relationship between U.S. and Japan strengthened

Mainichi said the security bonds between the U.S. and Japan have become even stronger following President Trump’s recent trip to Tokyo, attributing this to the Trump administration’s heavy reliance on “generals” and former U.S. military officials, including National Security Advisor McMaster and NSC Senior Director for Asia Matthew Pottinger. Communications between the SDF and the U.S. military have reportedly been very smooth even though a number of senior positions at many U.S. agencies have not yet been filled. Prime Minister Abe’s “free and open Indo-Pacific” diplomatic initiative, which was recently embraced by President Trump, was first relayed to Pottinger and other White House officials by PACOM Commander Harris.
