New Japanese PM Kishida starts diplomacy with U.S., Australia calls Updated: 2021-10-05 17:03:58 KST

The new Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, has begun his administration's diplomacy by speaking on the phone with the leaders of the U.S. and Australia.
In their talks Tuesday morning, Kishida said he got a commitment from U.S. President Joe Biden to defend the disputed islets in the East China Sea that Japan calls the Senkaku Islands and are also claimed by China, which calls them Diaoyu.
They also affirmed their cooperation to maintain a free and open Indo-Pacific.
In the next call, with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Kishida said there was an exchange of similar sentiments about securing a free Indo-Pacific, and they also reportedly discussed North Korea's recent missile tests.
Kishida also welcomed Australia's new pact with the U.S. and the UK, known as AUKUS, a deal that angered France and was condemned by China.
