“We would like to further bolster our cooperation with the Philippines, which has great significance (for Japan) in terms of security,” Japan’s Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi told a regular news conference in Japan prior to the meeting. 

With the ever lingering expansive ambitions of China in the West Philippine sea, its timely that the Philippines are finding more reasons to strengthen its friendship with Japan.

Japan and the Philippines signed a contract for Mitsubishi Electric Corporation to export air defense radars to the Philippines. The radars are expected to be delivered in 2023.
