British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab met Japanese Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu at Lancaster House in London this evening
Following the meeting, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
Japan is a close friend of the UK and our key security partner in Asia.
That partnership gains its strength from a mutual belief in collective security, respect for the rules-based international system and shared economic and strategic aims.
Our meeting here in London follows on from positive discussions in Tokyo earlier this year, and on both occasions, we found significant common ground.
Whether it’s our collective response to COVID-19, cybersecurity, climate change, or support for freedom in Hong Kong – the UK and Japan stand side by side, and I look forward to an even closer partnership in future.
