New ThinkChina Video: Two perspectives on Japanese foreign policy in East-Asia

Talks by Prof. Dr. Junya Nishino and Prof. Dr. Tomoki Kamo from Keio University giving two perspectives on Japanese foreign policy in East Asia. 

Dr. Junya Nishino assesses the current security environment on the Korean peninsula and Japan's efforts in dealing with North Korea, mainly focusing on the security and diplomatic cooperation triangle among Japan, the US and South Korea as well as Japan-South Korea bilateral cooperation. Dr. Tomoki Kamo provides new ways to see and understand why China chose to improve its relations with Japan last fall, even though the state of tension in the East China Sea remains unchanged. The seminar was commented by Dr. Andreas Bøje Forsby.
