日米指針改定「計画ない」 国防総省副報道官 共同社 20230120
Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh Holds a Press Briefing DoD 20230119
Q: Thank you. My question is about U.S.-Japan Security Consultative Committee, also (inaudible) the 2+2, held last Wednesday. The joint statement issued after the meeting didn't mention the need to revise the guidelines for U.S.-Japan defense cooperation, which provides a framework of laws and missions of U.S.-Japan alliance. What would be the U.S. position on whether it's necessary to revise these guidelines for U.S.-Japan defense cooperation after Japan changed its strategic documents last year?
MS. SINGH: Well, we were very pleased and welcomed the — the Defense Strategy that Japan recently announced, just before the visit here in the United States. We welcomed the release of — of their national security documents and we see that as an opportunity to build on the — the strong alliance that bolsters regional deterrence there. And, you know, the announcements that were made at the — at the 2+2 just last week I think highlight that.
We have no plans to update the defense guidelines at this time but, you know, as you saw last — last week, it's a very deep alliance that we have with Japan, and looking forward to working with them in the future.
Great. I'm going to go to the phones and then I'll come back. Lara Seligman, Politico?
Q: Hi. I've a question on Ukraine and the Japan question. Earlier this week the Netherlands announced that they were also sending a patriot battery. So that makes three. Is going to the — the Contact Group meeting tomorrow, is the U.S. going to be scouring trying to get other operators to donate more batteries, and how is that discussion focusing on training? Has the U.S. worked out with the Netherlands to provide more training inside the U.S.?
MS. SINGH: Well, I don't want to get ahead of the discussions. They're happening tomorrow, as you just mentioned. I think we welcome any additional commitment when it comes to giving Ukraine more air defense capability from any country or any partner.
And so in terms of the training and — and whether our — our teams would train on the — the — a patriot battery provided by the Netherlands, I just don't have an answer for you on that.
Many countries do conduct their own training, as we've seen from the beginning of this war. So I think what the Secretary is looking for tomorrow is further commitments from other partners and allies to help Ukraine and that is up to those sovereign states to decide what — what commitments they can give.
But of course we know that air capability is one of them or air defense is one of them.
Q: Do you if the three committed ones are all the same variant ultimately?
MS. SINGH: I don't. I don't know.
Q: OK. And on Japan do you — sorry — in the meetings last week we had heard about the Marine — new Marine regiment in Okinawa.
MS. SINGH: Yes.
Q: At the same time the Air Force has pulled out its F-15 unit in Kadena. Do you know if that came up in the discussions, the future of the U.S. air presence in Okinawa?
MS. SINGH: I don't — I don't know that that came up but I think that you saw last week the deep commitment that we have to the region and part of that was — was discussed in the Secretary's meeting and the Secretary of State's meeting at the Department of State. So that does not impact the relationship or the readiness or the threat in that region, yeah.
