Japan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs has been a busy man of late. On his trip to the US to meet US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other officials, he dropped by the Center for Strategic and International Studies to give a lecture on Japan in the world, touching on its relationship with the US (including Okinawa), the issue of North Korea, and development. If you can get past the staccato reading pace (but kudos for giving the talk in English), then it works as an overview of Japan’s goals for the coming year (more about this in tonight’s Weekend Update – watch this space).

See more of these speeches, and enjoy CSIS’s analysis at their site.
