The Asia-Pacific region is steadily playing a greater role in global affairs more commensurate to its size and the depth of its diversity. In this rapidly changing part of the world, the U.S.-Japan alliance is the lynchpin of U.S. engagement. Founded on the shared values of democracy, respect for human rights and rule of law, this alliance must face up to regional challenges and opportunities ranging from six-party negotiations with North Korea to the rise of China and India. The U.S. and Japan share a long history of diplomatic and economic engagement, but how will this relationship evolve against the backdrop of Asia’s changing political and economic landscape? Deputy Secretary of State John D. Negroponte discusses the shifting context of the U.S.-Japan relationship in today’s world.
