National Security Advisor Sullivan outlines agenda for summit with Japanese leader

NHK reported that National Security Advisor Sullivan spoke about President Biden’s upcoming East Asian tour during a press conference on Wednesday. He said the trip will be an extremely important opportunity to demonstrate America’s leadership in the Indo-Pacific, which, like Europe, is “another vital region.” The White House official said the President will officially announce the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) while in Tokyo in the presence of Prime Minister Kishida, adding that some ASEAN leaders are expected to take part in the launch event remotely. Regarding IPEF, he was quoted as saying: “It is a 21st century economic arrangement, a new model designed to tackle new economic challenges — from setting the rules of the digital economy, to ensuring secure and resilient supply chains, to managing the energy transition, to investing in clean, modern, high-standards infrastructure.”
