Today, President Joe Biden will meet virtually with Prime Minister Kishida Fumio of Japan. The new Japanese prime minister was previously a diplomat and has prioritized his nation’s economy and income inequality.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated, “The meeting will highlight the strength of the U.S.-Japan Alliance, which is the cornerstone of peace, security, and stability in the Indo-Pacific and around the world.”

She continued, “President Biden looks forward to working with Prime Minister Kishida to advance our shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific, and to expand our close cooperation on critical issues like combatting COVID-19, addressing the climate crisis, and partnering on new and emerging technologies, including through the Quad.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the two leaders to have wisdom as they discuss the matters and situations that concern both nations.
  • For U.S. diplomats and allies as they seek to strengthen relationships in the Indo-Pacific.
