I had a good discussion today with Japanese Prime Minister Suga—the first world leader to visit us here in Washington. Together, the U.S. and Japan will strengthen our efforts to promote peace, prosperity, and security in the Indo-Pacific.

Secretary Blinken: The economic relationship between the United States and Japan is powerful and vital. We’re top trading partners. We’re top investors in each other’s economies. And we now have over 900,000 Americans whose jobs are tied to Japanese investment. https://go.usa.gov/xs72r

The United States and Japan share a robust economic partnership, including over $300 billion worth of goods and services exchanged each year, investments supporting more than 948,100 American jobs, and collaboration on building trusted 5G networks.

“The climate crisis – is growing. We all need to do more. Every country,” stressed U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry during his April 18 media roundtable in Seoul. “I’m not here to point fingers at any nation. I’m here to talk about how we can transition faster to the new energy economy with all the jobs that it promises." Climate Envoy Kerry met with Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Korea Foreign Minister Chung, and ROK environment (대한민국 환경부) Minister, Han, and discussed limiting global warming to 1.5°C or less. “I also admire greatly President Moon’s initiatives and efforts. As a global citizen, he has a great sense of responsibility and it’s wonderful to see Korea taking the lead and caring so much about regional and global concerns,” the Climate Envoy said.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The United States condemned the sentencing of seven Hong Kong pro-democracy leaders on politically-motivated charges. “Today’s sentences are yet another example of how the PRC and Hong Kong authorities undermine protected rights and fundamental freedoms guaranteed by the Basic Law and the Sino-British Joint Declaration in an effort to eliminate all forms of dissent,” U.S. Department of State Secretary Antony J. Blinken said. “We will continue to stand with Hong Kongers as they respond to Beijing’s assault on these freedoms and autonomy, and we will not stop calling for the release of those detained or imprisoned for exercising their fundamental freedoms.”

Secretary Blinken: The sentences of Hong Kong's democracy activists on politically-motivated charges are unacceptable and incompatible with the non-violent nature of their actions. We call for the release of those detained and imprisoned for exercising fundamental freedoms.
