U.S., Japan to strengthen space cooperation

Yomiuri wrote that President Biden and Prime Minister Kishida agreed in their joint statement released on Monday that their two nations will promote cooperation in the area of space, including in the U.S.-led Artemis project. According to the paper, the President referred to Japan’s Hayabusa 2 space probe at the joint press conference and stressed that it is a symbol of progress in space cooperation between the United States and Japan toward going to the Moon and Mars. The paper said China is set to work closely with Russia to counter the U.S.-led space project. Mainichi ran a similar story, quoting President Biden as saying at the joint news conference: “I look forward to the first Japanese astronaut joining us in the mission to the lunar surface under the Artemis program.”
