Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Sunday that Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi will hold talks with U.S. Secretary of State Brinken on Monday (3rd) in London, England.
China News Agency reported that this will be the meeting between the two again after Brinken visited Japan in March. It is reported that the talks will be based on the first summit meeting between Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and US President Biden in April to discuss strengthening the Japan-US alliance and the situation in the East China Sea, South China Sea, and Myanmar.
The adjustment of the North Korean policy that the Biden administration has promoted since taking office in January has been completed. Some people believe that during the Japan-US foreign ministers’ talks, the US will explain to the Japanese side.
In addition, the G7 foreign ministers’ meeting will be held in the UK from May 3rd to 5th. The British Foreign Office issued a statement stating: “The foreign ministers will discuss countering new global threats, protecting democracy, protecting human rights, measures to combat climate change, and recovery after the pandemic.”
The seven foreign ministers’ meeting is also the first series of face-to-face meetings in the last two years. According to sources, representatives from ASEAN and India will also attend the meeting for the first time because the UK is deepening ties with the Indo-Pacific region.
According to the news, epidemic prevention and safety measures will be taken at all meetings, including maintaining social distancing, transparent plexiglass partitions, and strict restrictions on the number of delegation participants. All participants are required to undergo regular testing for the new coronavirus.
