Suga comments on trip to U.S. 

All national dailies reported on Monday that Prime Minister Suga commented yesterday on his planned visit to the U.S. next month for talks with President Biden during a speech at the National Defense Academy commencement ceremony. “I am determined to further strengthen the U.S.-Japan alliance without fail while deepening my personal relationship of trust with President Biden,” Suga said. “No country can defend peace and security without support from others.” In a separate speech he made during the LDP convention later in the day, Suga noted that he will be the first foreign leader to be invited to visit the U.S. by President Biden, saying that this is proof of the high level of importance the new administration attaches to its relations with Japan. The premier expressed hope for reaffirming mutual coordination with the President on such issues as the coronavirus pandemic, climate, change, China, and the abductions.
