As US-Japan Ties Strengthen, Obama Says China Shouldn’t Worry

“President Obama said Tuesday that China has “benefited” from the U.S. presence in Asia and rejected the notion that new defense guidelines between the United States and Japan should be viewed as a provocation in Beijing,” according to The Washington Post .  

“Obama’s remarks came a day after the United States and Japan announced a revised defense agreement that would allow Japan’s Self-Defense Forces to take a more active role in regional security. The changes, which are relatively modest, allow Japan to act when U.S. forces are threatened by a third country.”
