Deputy Secretary Negroponte: Travel to Northeast Asia
Deputy Secretary of State John D. Negroponte traveled to Japan, China, and the Republic of Korea March 1 - 6. He discussed a range of bilateral and strategic issues with counterparts in the three countries, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, the North Korea nuclear issue, regional security, the war on terrorism, and trade.
Japan and the Republic of Korea are two of the United States' key allies, coordinating closely with us on issues both in the region and globally. The United States continues to broaden and deepen its constructive, cooperative and candid relationship with China, and the Deputy Secretary discussed the scheduling of a fourth round of our Senior Dialogue later this year.
