ラーム・エマニュエル駐日米国大使のスピーチに参加|Attended Speech by U.S. Ambassador Rahm Emanuel


On February 9, I had the privilege of attending the Japan-America Society of Hokkaido’s exclusive Special New Year’s Luncheon event. The occasion was graced by the presence of a distinguished American guest, Mr. Rahm Emanuel, the U.S. Ambassador to Japan, who traveled from Tokyo to deliver a compelling and impactful speech.

As Mr. Emanuel eloquently pointed out, the world has undergone dramatic changes due to the three Cs – Corona, Conflict, and Coercion. In this context, Japan’s efforts to strengthen deterrence and the deepening of Japan-U.S. relations bear significant importance in maintaining stability and order in the Asian region, in my opinion.
