Defense minister, U.S. Navy Secretary agree on strengthened security cooperation

Yomiuri wrote that Defense Minister Kishi and Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro agreed to strengthen cooperation between the U.S. Navy and the MSDF during their talks on Monday at the Defense Ministry. Referring to the recent passage by a flotilla of ten Chinese and Russian navy vessels through the Tsugaru Strait, Kishi reportedly told the Navy Secretary that the security environment surrounding Japan is becoming increasingly severe and the need to deepen cooperation between the U.S. Navy and the MSDF is higher than ever before. Mainichi and Sankei also wrote that in response to Kishi’s expression of concern over North Korea’s recent SLBM launches and the security environment surrounding Japan, Secretary Del Toro said cooperation between the two naval forces is important and the United States will make efforts to strengthen its partnership with Japan.
