This meeting will focus on the US-Japan alliance.  This is a pivotal time for the US-Japan alliance. The Abe government has recently completed its new National Defense Plan Guidelines, published its first ever National Security Strategy, and the two allies have begun the process of updating the US-Japan Defense Guidelines. This occurs, of course, against the backdrop of new security challenges from North Korea and China’s increasingly capable military and new assertiveness.  It also occurs as Japan’s historical revisionism is exacerbating differences with China and the ROK, in the later case, impeding US-ROK-Japan strategic cooperation.  We will focus on these issues and the implications for, and challenges to, US extended deterrence in Asia.

Please use the West Tower elevators when you arrive.
