TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga said on Thursday he had agreed with U.S. President Joe Biden in a phone call to strengthen their bilateral alliance, as China expands its economic and military might.

They also agreed to arrange a visit to the United States for Suga as early as possible, Suga told reporters.
