US, Japan to boost cooperation in defence talks

US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter delivers a speech during a joint press conference with Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani, at the Defence Ministry in Tokyo, on April 8, 2015New guidelines governing the Japan-US defence alliance should allow the two militaries to “seamlessly cooperate”, American Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told a newspaper ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with his Japanese counterpart in Tokyo. On the second day of a three-day visit to Japan, Carter was meeting with Defence Minister Gen Nakatani to thrash out new guidelines governing the way their countries’ militaries work together. The move comes as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is pushing for a higher profile regional role for Japan at a time of growing disquiet in Asia over the rise of a newly-assertive China. The guideline revisions the two men were discussing Wednesday will be officially completed in Washington at the end of April, when Abe visits the US, along with Nakatani and Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.
