(About the Japan-US-Australia-India Summit)

At the meeting, the leaders exchanged frank opinions on important issues facing the Indo-Pacific region, such as the new corona, climate change, new technologies, and regional conditions. In that process, we have firmly communicated Japan’s position. The vaccine policies of the four countries are of unparalleled scale. We agreed to promote cooperation in infrastructure, space, clean energy, and human exchange. It was also agreed to hold a summit meeting every year in the future. Japan-US-Australia-India, which Japan has promoted, this initiative has become firmly established. I think it was a very meaningful meeting for the further development of cooperation for the realization of the free and open Indo-Pacific of our four countries.

(Summary of diplomacy for the past year and handing over to the next Prime Minister)

The world is facing challenges such as the new corona, climate change, and competition with authoritarianism, and we have made every effort to protect Japan’s national interests and contribute to world peace and security. I especially focused on the Japan-US alliance, which is the cornerstone of Japan’s diplomacy and security. In addition, we have focused on promoting the Free and Open Indo-Pacific and active efforts based on multilateralism. Under the relationship of trust with President Biden, I believe that Japan and the United States have been able to further strengthen the alliance and further strengthen the bond between the two countries. In addition, the free and open Indo-Pacific that Japan has promoted, the United States, Australia and India this time, and other comrades such as ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and Europe, who share the same aspirations, are working toward this realization. I think we were able to deepen our cooperation. And I think that we have also led multilateral efforts such as holding a vaccine summit to promote solidarity with the international community. It means that you will be placed by the next prime minister. I would like you to actively develop diplomacy that contributes to world peace and security under a firm strategy. That’s all from me.
