11:07 am
feature very prominently here as he did in south korea. and as in south korea, joe biden will be looking to strengthen ties with this very important ally in the shape of japan at a time when the united states and it's, and also east asian allies are facing challenges on a number of fronts. this is meant to send a message to north korea, also sending a message to china as well, which is becoming increasingly assertive in the asia pacific region. and it is something which is felt very keenly here in japan, which is locked in an ongoing dispute with china. over territorial claims in the east china see, i think it's also important for biden strip, because it also possibly sends a message to russia with the events unfolding as they are in ukraine. united states is leading this international community and isolating in sanctioning russia and it's something which is supported here in japan. it has imposed its own sanctions in japan. has been praised by the us for rallying other east asian countries in

standing by france there. and so florence, the president, before he left, visited a secure underground facility. yes. and it's really very symbolic. the choice of location. the fact that it was a joint appearance with the south korean president union. so i think it was meant to highlight the strength of the security alliance that goes back decades 70 years between now and this is coming on. this is coming on the back of a security over summit that the 2 leaders held where they had agreed that they would face the threat of north korea aggression together. they both agreed that they would enhance a step up combined military exercises. they would enhance sanctions, they would look at possibly deploying more american weapons to the region them. both leaders also stressed, however, that the door to negotiations with north korea is still open. if north korea is serious about de nuclear station, and of course the issue of north aggression from north korea is made more urgent
