Japanese media: US Pacific commander Harris may visit Tokyo next month

[global report Wang industrial chain cooperation is not close yet] Japan's Kyodo news agency quoted a source from US Japan relations on January 18 as saying that the US and Japanese governments began to carry out final coordination on the US Pacific Command commander Harris' visit to Japan in mid February. Harris is currently considering arranging talks with Japanese defense minister Nakatani won and meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

it is reported that Harris' visit is aimed at confirming the strengthening of the US Japan alliance to put pressure on North Korea, which forcibly conducted a nuclear test. At the same time, the visit also aims to contain China, which is increasingly active in marine activities. Affected by North Korea's nuclear test, the US Pacific command sent B52 strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear warheads to South Korea. On the other hand, the United States has also launched the so-called "freedom of navigation" action of sending ships to the waters around the islands and reefs in the South China Sea. Harris is in charge of these operations

according to us Japan relations sources, Harris is coordinating the schedule of his visit to Japan based on the 10th anniversary of the founding of the integrated staff supervision department of the self defense force (equivalent to the General Staff Department) to be held in Japan's defense ministry and other places on February 17

Kyodo News Agency predicts that in the talks with Zhonggu and others, the two sides will try to strengthen cooperation in dealing with North Korea and China. In particular, with regard to North Korea, the two sides plan to strongly demand that it refrain from launching long-range ballistic missiles and other new provocative acts. Harris plans to deliver a speech to self defense force cadres and others, focusing on the security related law of lifting the ban implemented in March, slowly unscrewing the oil delivery valve to stop intensifying the experiment on the right to collective self-defense, and intends to publicize the solid alliance between the United States and Japan

Harris' mother is Japanese. He was born in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture. In May 2015, according to China's new energy vehicle development plan, he became the first Japanese American to serve as the Pacific commander of the U.S. military. Later, he visited Tokyo in June and held talks with Abe and Nakatani. When Zhonggu visited Hawaii in November, the two also held talks, and the two sides reached an agreement on the policy of continuing the joint training of the US military and the Maritime Self Defense Force in the South China Sea and assisting Southeast Asian countries in building relevant capabilities
