Trump marks the US-Japanese security pact with the call for a stronger and deeper alliance

-

TOKYO, January 19 (Reuters). United States President Donald Trump celebrated the 60th anniversary of the signing of the current US-Japan security agreement by calling for a stronger and deeper alliance between the two countries, despite criticizing the pact six months ago.

“As the security environment evolves and new challenges arise, it is important that our alliance be further strengthened and deepened,” Trump said in a statement on January 18.

“I am confident that Japan’s contributions to our mutual security will continue to grow in the coming months and years, and that Allianz will continue to thrive.”

At a press conference in Japan last June, Trump said in Japan that the 1960s treaty, which was signed on Sunday exactly six decades ago and is the linchpin of Japanese defense policy, is “unfair” and needs to be changed as it has been since It has long been established that Japan is a defensive freelancer.

Trump added at the time that he hadn’t thought of withdrawing from the pact.

The treaty obliges the United States to defend Japan, which, after World War II, renounced the right to wage war under its United States constitution. In return, Japan provides military bases that are used by the United States to project power in Asia.

The contract was first signed in 1951 and revised in 1960 under the leadership of then Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi, grandfather of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Kishi was forced to resign after a public outcry from Japanese critics who feared the pact would put their country in conflict.
