Saturday evening’s Asahi highlighted an Australian Broadcasting Corporation report claiming that Prime Minister Abe will visit Darwin, Australia, to hold talks with Prime Minister Morrison before they attend the APEC leaders’ summit in Papua New Guinea on Nov. 18. It will be the first visit by a Japanese premier to the northern Australian city that the Japanese Imperial Army bombed during WWII. In the summit with the new Australian leader, PM Abe is likely to discuss bilateral defense cooperation in view of China’s military buildup. While in Darwin, the Japanese leader is also expected to tour an LNG platform being developed by a Japanese oil firm.
