Sullivan Welcomes Japanese Prime Minister Abe to U.S.

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the eve of his visit to the United States, and spoke on the Senate floor regarding the importance of America’s alliances to national and global security.

“Our alliances are one of the most important strategic advantages that the United States has at hand,” said Senator Sullivan. “We are ally rich, and our enemies or potential adversaries are ally poor. As President Trump emphasized in his inaugural address, America must reaffirm its long-standing alliances and form new ones. Japan is one of those crucial existing alliances, and I look forward to meeting with Prime Minister Abe and ensuring this cooperation and partnership between our two nations continues for years to come. I encourage my colleagues to join me in welcoming Prime Minister Abe.”
