Japan to upgrade security alliance with United States

IN a few weeks, U.S. President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida are anticipated to announce the biggest upgrade of security ties between their countries.

The major revamp involves improved military planning and more joint exercises.

Both leaders will announce their plans to restructure the U.S. military command in Japan when Kishida joins Biden in the White House for an official visit on April 10.

The U.S. Army revealed last month about reducing the size of its force by about 24,000 as it prepares to fight the next major war.

The transformation comes as the U.S. military struggles to recruit new members and instead focuses on young people who have spent time in college or are job hunting to address the enlistment shortfalls.

Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said the U.S. military is deducting the number of American troops in certain fields as it moves away from counterterrorism and counterinsurgency while shifting its focus on large-scale combat operations.
