Ambassadors Roundtable: A U.S.-Japan Alliance for the 21st Century
Global Security Roundtable series
Part of the Distinguished Lecturer Series
Even before September 11th, the Bush administration had been rethinking America’s strategic priorities, putting a renewed emphasis on Japan and the U.S.-Japan security alliance. But just how will the U.S.-Japan relationship evolve over the coming decade as it adapts to changing domestic attitudes and new economic and military challenges? In this, the 50th anniversary of Japan’s regaining its sovereignty after the U.S. occupation, four current and former Ambassadors discuss the outlook for the U.S.-Japan alliance.
Ryozo Kato, Japanese Ambassador to the United States
Thomas S. Foley, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan
Walter F. Mondale, former U.S. Ambassador to Japan
Yoshio Okawara, former Japanese Ambassador to the United States
David E. Sanger, Senior White House Correspondent, The New York Times.
