Foreign Secretary praises strength of UK-Japan partnership

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab met Japanese Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu at Lancaster House in London yesterday.

Following the meeting, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab yesterday 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, cyber security, 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.
