According to some reports, French President Emmanuel Macron clearly expressed his position on this issue in a conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Paris starts from the fact that the North Atlantic region is within the sphere of responsibility of the political-military bloc. According to journalists, the official Tokyo also does not intend to be zealous to achieve the opening of an office on Japanese territory in the near future.
At the same time, in recent years there has been a trend to strengthen Japan’s ties with NATO. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will arrive in Lithuanian Vilnius in July this year to participate in the alliance summit. Last year, he became the first Japanese head of government to attend a similar event in Madrid.
