Saturday evening’s Nikkei wrote that Prime Minister Kishida stated in a video message shown at the annual Mount Fuji Dialogue held in Tokyo on Saturday that he will strategically promote the realization of a free and open Indo-Pacific in cooperation with President Biden and will elevate the U.S.-Japan alliance to a higher level. Kishida also said the world is facing many challenges, including an increasingly harsh regional security environment; events that threaten universal values such as freedom, democracy, and human rights; and global issues such as climate change and the novel coronavirus.
