Assistant Secretary Stilwell meets with senior GOJ officials

Asahi reported on Saturday that Assistant Secretary of State Stilwell met with National Security Secretariat chief Yachi, Vice Foreign Minister Akiba, and Defense Ministry Defense Policy Bureau Director General Tsuchimichi on Friday to discuss the East Asian situation, Japan-U.S. cooperation, and “possibly” also the Iran situation. Asahi noted that this was the first meeting between senior Japanese and U.S. officials after Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Dunford suggested forming a coalition of the willing for the security of the Strait of Hormuz. Nikkei filed a brief report on Stilwell’s meeting with Akiba saying that he was briefed on Japan’s position on recent issues with the ROK, including the issue of wartime requisitioned workers. Mainichi also reported on the meeting with Akiba in its story on the Japan-ROK working-level meeting on the export curbs.
