NHK reported that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga stressed at a press conference this morning the importance of building broad and stable relationships with nations based on the U.S.-Japan alliance. He reportedly said: “In general, personal relationships of trust between leaders bring nations closer. In addition, when a prime minister negotiates and conveys messages in multilateral talks, it reinforces understanding and support for the position of Japan. Summit diplomacy is extremely important.” While saying that it will not be easy for him to achieve the level of performance of Prime Minister Abe, who successfully built personal relationships of trust with global leaders, Suga reportedly said: “It is extremely important to build broad and stable bilateral relationships based on the U.S.-Japan alliance while taking international affairs into consideration.” Meanwhile, concerning the agreement between Israel and Bahrain to normalize their diplomatic relations through the mediation of the Trump administration, Suga reportedly said: “I hope the moves toward easing tensions and stabilization in the Middle East will advance as a result of the latest agreement on top of the normalization agreement between Israel and UAE. I welcome the mediation efforts by the U.S., including President Trump.”
