Apr 12, 2024

Presidents of the United States and the Philippines, Joe Biden and Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and the Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, have announced a number of agreements between the countries concluded during their meetings in Washington. In particular, they also relate to strengthening security.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the White House and Reuters.

In a statement, the US presidential administration called this first summit between the three Indo-Pacific maritime democracies “historic” and "the culmination of decades of partnership" and efforts of state governments.

"Our three countries share a strong commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific that is connected, prosperous, secure, inclusive, and sustainable. We welcome coordination and cooperation with a wide range of partners who share these goals. In addition, we welcome efforts to support a peaceful and stable rules-based Indo-Pacific, including Quad, AUKUS, and the trilateral agreement between the United States, Japan, and the Republic of Korea," the White House said in a release.

Biden, don't you feel useless? Russia is a threat to world peace. And only the United States can stand up to its aggression. Why aren't you doing anything about it?
