Defense experts comment on significance of President Trump, PM Abe’s Kaga visit

Former Defense Minister Gen Nakatani stated during an NTV program on Tuesday evening that by visiting the Kaga together President Trump and Prime Minister Abe were able not only to demonstrate the strength of the U.S.-Japan alliance, but also to showcase to the world the power of the upcoming deployment of cutting-edge F-35B stealth fighters on the Kaga. He said this is very important for Japan’s security and defense and served to project the strong presence of the bilateral security alliance. Sasakawa Peace Foundation Senior Fellow Bonji Ohara also noted that the Japanese government scored an achievement in that Abe was able to demonstrate to President Trump the efforts that Japan is making to reinforce its defense capabilities so he will understand that Japan is an important security partner.
