About the Event

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will make an official visit to the US on April 10.  This visit is expected to show that the US and Japan stand united in upholding the rule-based international order.  The U.S. and Japan have become global partners in a time of the international order being challenged, based on “Kizuna,” the strong bond of trust and friendship that has been nurtured over decades by multiple layers of human connections.  The foundation of “kizuna” is critical to an enduring U.S.-Japan partnership that will weather the storm of global uncertainty.
