ELMAU, Germany (Jiji Press) — The Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday held brief talks and confirmed their cooperation toward the success of the first two-plus-two meeting of Japanese and U.S. foreign and economic ministers to be held in July.
The two met on the sidelines of a Group of Seven summit, which started Sunday in Elmau, Germany, for a three-day run.
They also affirmed that Japan and the United States will cooperate on a plan to set a ceiling on Russian oil prices as part of economic sanctions, on which G7 leaders reached a broad agreement.
Furthermore, Kishida and Biden agreed to work together closely to strengthen the Japan-U.S. alliance and realize a free and open Indo-Pacific, apparently to counter China’s rise in the region.
