Sustaining U.S.-Japan alliance topic of Adm. Blair keynote in Chicago

February 24, 2017

The U.S.-Japan alliance is stronger than ever, but work still needs to be done to sustain the positive momentum and navigate potential crises that could arise in the future, Adm. Dennis Blair, Chairman and Distinguished Senior Fellow at Sasakawa USA, said February 23 at an event focusing on the New Asian Security Landscape.

Hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, the event included two panels on U.S. Policy toward Asia and Security Challenges in Northeast Asia before moving on to Blair’s keynote address and moderated discussion.

The event explored topics pertinent to U.S.-Asia relations under President Donald Trump, including the possible reevaluation of security treaties, the questioning of China’s practices regionally and economically, countering nuclear proliferation in North Korea, and the formal withdrawal of the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
