Japan, Australia considering revising joint declaration on security cooperation 

Sankei gave top play to a report on the finding on Wednesday that the governments of Japan and Australia are considering revising the 2007 Japan-Australia Joint Declaration on Security Cooperation. The paper wrote that since the current joint declaration is focused on security cooperation against North Korea, the two governments are planning to revise it to include strengthening security cooperation against China. The daily added that Japan and Australia are hoping to increase their joint response capabilities for responding to contingencies, including over the Taiwan Strait. The paper said the new joint declaration will also map out deeper cooperation toward realizing a free and open Indo-Pacific, wider cooperation with India under the Quad framework, and stronger ties with ASEAN, Pacific island nations, and European nations.
