Chargé Young: U.S.-Japan cooperation “holds forth the hope of good news”

The Sunday edition of Mainichi carried an op-ed by Chargé d’Affaires Young, who wrote that the cooperative relationship between the United States and Japan has become an important asset in their respective efforts to address the mounting challenges of COVID-19 in this 60th year of the U.S.-Japan alliance. He noted that just as Japan helped with the repatriation of American passengers from the Diamond Princess and the hospitalization of those infected on the vessel, the United States helped with the return of Japanese citizens from several countries. He also touched on joint bilateral trials on potential coronavirus treatments, increasing collaboration in the manufacturing sector to produce medical equipment, and the critical role played by communications technology amid the need for social distancing. The Chargé concluded by writing: “Just as the U.S.-Japan alliance promotes peace and stability, our collaborative endeavor to defeat the virus is yielding significant contributions to global health and safety.”
