Remarks at the Japanese Ministry of Defense
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs
I just want to underscore how well this process is proceeding. Both leaders at the highest level – our President, the Japanese Prime Minister – have committed to work on this aggressively in the spirit of a strong partnership, and we hope to have real progress over the course of the next several weeks, in preparation for President Obama’s visit here to Japan in early November.
In terms of the details, I just want to underscore that every specific issue was addressed in great detail, and we’re very pleased at the progress we’re making.
Thank you all very much.
