Japan pledges $1 million to support ASEAN’s response to COVID-19

Yomiuri wrote that Foreign Minister Motegi pledged during a videoconference with his ASEAN counterparts on Wednesday that Japan will contribute $1 million to a new fund established to assist ASEAN’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic through the procurement of medical supplies and development of vaccines. Mainichi and Sankei ran similar reports, adding that Motegi expressed Japan’s support for the “ASEAN outlook on the Indo-Pacific,” a vision agreed on by the ASEAN countries in June 2019 to ensure the rule of law and transparency, and called for their cooperation in resolving the issue of North Korea’s abductions of Japanese nationals.
