Fumio Kishida Prime Minister of Japan

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said today, Wednesday, that he will hold talks with US President Joe Biden at the White House on January 13, noting that he will also visit other G7 allies this month.

The visit will be Kishida's first visit to the US capital, Washington, since he took office in October 2021.

The Japanese prime minister added that the meeting with Biden would be "very important" and show the strengthening of the Japan-US alliance.

Kishida said he would also discuss with the US president the new Japanese defense policy.

He also indicated that he also plans to visit France, Italy, Canada and Britain this month, as Japan holds the G7 presidency.

Earlier, the White House announced in a statement that the Japanese prime minister's visit "will further deepen relations between the two countries."

The two sides are expected to discuss regional security challenges, including issues related to North Korea and China, as well as the Ukrainian crisis and ways to address climate change.
