All national papers except Mainichi reported today that U.S. Army Chief of Staff Milley paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Abe at the Kantei on Monday, during which they agreed to step up trilateral coordination with South Korea so as to rein in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. In response to the premier’s statement emphasizing the importance of maintaining strong pressure on the DPRK, the U.S. general said: “The U.S.-Japan alliance is very strong…. We would like to deal with North Korea through trilateral coordination.” General Milley met with Defense Minister Onodera earlier and stressed the importance of preparing for an “unforeseen event.”
