Top US diplomat makes overseas debut with Japan, Korea visits

TRT World says Antony Blinken has called for deeper economic ties with Japan, as he and Lloyd Austin seek to use their first trip abroad to solidify Asian alliances as a bulwark against China’s assertiveness.

Their visit to Tokyo and later Seoul is the first overseas outing by top cabinet members of Joe Biden’s team and follows a virtual summit last week of the leaders of the US, Japan, Australia and India – the ‘Quad’ alliance.

“The economic relationship between the United States and Japan is, as you know very well, one of the strongest in the world,” Blinken said in remarks to a group of business leaders in Tokyo on Tuesday.
