Japan and the United States are dedicated to working together to advance human security, economic prosperity and political stability throughout the world.
The ”Fact Sheet on United States-Japan Global Cooperation,” which was issued when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe received a courtesy call from U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden on December 3, 2013, highlights humanitarian assistance/disaster relief, development assistance (Southeast Asia, the Pacific region, Africa, global health, the Millennium Development Goals, empowering women), contributions to global security (commitment to Middle East Peace, commitment to Syria, maritime safety and security) as focuses of cooperation. Moreover, according to the Fact Sheet, a new, regular, senior-level ”Japan-U.S. Development Dialogue” has been initiated.
Japan and the United States shares the view that enhanced cooperation on development between the two countries will widen the scope of the bilateral relations and contribute to constructing more multi-faceted and strengthened bilateral relations.
