The Prime Minister of Japan and the President of the Philippines have agreed on cooperation in the field of security.

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. at a meeting on the sidelines of the 77th session of the UN General Assembly agreed to develop cooperation in the fields of security, energy and infrastructure construction. This was reported on Thursday by the Kyodo news agency, citing a representative of the Japanese government.

According to him, the two leaders also discussed the situation in the South China and East China Seas, as Tokyo is concerned about China's active actions in the region.

In addition, as noted, the parties discussed the problem of "economic coercion", as Japan calls Beijing's practice of allocating loans to developing countries, aimed, according to Tokyo, at increasing their dependence on China.

The talks on the sidelines of UN events in New York were the first personal meeting of the leaders of Japan and the Philippines. Reportedly, among other things, they discussed preparations for the visit of the Philippine president to Tokyo.
