Japan and France meet for defense cooperation

Japan and France have agreed to boost defense cooperation.

Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera met with his French counterpart Florence Parly in Tokyo on Saturday. Onodera said France, with its vast exclusive economic zone in the Pacific region, is Japan’s special partner. Two ministers agreed to boost bilateral cooperation to promote a free and open Indo-Pacific region.

Ministers  confirmed that North Korea’s nuclear and missile development poses a grave and imminent threat to the international community and have agreed to use all possible measures to step up pressure against the North to a maximum level.

Both ministers agree  to conduct joint military drills on land and at sea.

Onodera and Parly then inspected a Japanese Self-Defense Force unit in charge of PAC3 interceptor missiles deployed in the Defense Ministry compound.

Onodera later told reporters that they also spoke in the meeting about China’s maritime activities in the South China Sea.
