Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has said that he hopes the upcoming trilateral summit between Japan, the United States, and South Korea, which will take place on April 18 in the United States, will “further strengthen the foundation for strengthening cooperation with the United States and South Korea, which has been laid in layers, including at the head of state level.”
Prime Minister Kishida made the remarks at a press conference at the Prime Minister’s Office in Tokyo this afternoon (April 4), noting that this is the first summit between Japan, the United States, and South Korea to be held on its own, rather than on the occasion of an international conference.
The trilateral summit will be held at Camp David, the private residence of the U.S. president, near Washington, on Sept. 18.
As for the issues to be discussed at the summit, “I will refrain from making any prejudgments, but I am looking forward to further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the three countries on issues such as dealing with 먹튀검증토토사이트 North Korea and strengthening the maintenance of a free and open international order based on the rule of law,” he said.
Prime Minister Kishida is scheduled to visit the United States on April 17.
The summit is expected to include bilateral meetings as well as trilateral meetings between the three countries.
