Remarks With Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada
Secretary of State
QUESTION: How much of a blow would it be, Secretary Clinton, if the Japanese ceased the Indian Ocean refueling mission for Afghanistan?
SECRETARY CLINTON: Arshad, we’re going to be discussing a wide range of issues. Our relationship between Japan and the United States is so broad and so deep that there isn’t any one issue that defines it. It is comprehensive and it has stood the test of time for many years. And I’m looking forward to working with the minister, and on behalf of the Obama Administration, really rolling up our sleeves and determining how best we can broaden and deepen this already very strong relationship.
QUESTION: Are you going to talk about the bases?
STAFF: Thank you, guys. Thank you, guys.
