Japan and the US will discuss strengthening cooperation in the military sphere to help Ukraine more

The United States and Japan are discussing strengthening military cooperation to increase the supply of ammunition to Ukraine, news outlet Yomiuri reported on March 10.

Strengthening cooperation will be a key topic during the summit between Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and U.S. President Joe Biden, which will take place on April 10 in Washington.

Japan revised its three principles for the transfer of defense equipment and operational guidelines in December 2023, according to the newspaper. It allowed the export of missiles for the Patriot system to the United States to compensate for the shortage of American missiles. The two sides are expected to "reaffirm their policy of accelerating such complementary relations" at the summit, Yomiuri writes.
