Since the inauguration of the current administration led by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan has pursued a strategic diplomacy toward Asian countries such as China, the Republic of Korea, North Korea, ASEAN, Australia and India through a panoramic perspective of the world map. Mr. Shinsuke Sugiyama, Japan’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, provides an overview of Japan’s foreign policy which aims to contribute more proactively to the peace and stability of the region and the international community amid an increasingly severe security environment in the Asia-Pacific region.
