NATO and Japan signed an agreement on deepening partnership

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday signed a plan to deepen a multi-year partnership. "Today we signed an agreement that will deepen these relations," Rasmussen said in a message on the NATO website.

"This raises our practical cooperation to a new level, including in the field of combating piracy, eliminating the consequences of natural disasters and humanitarian aid," the NATO Secretary General stressed.

The program of individual partnership and cooperation was signed during the visit of Abe to NATO headquarters.

As Rassmussen noted, pointing to the crisis around Ukraine, there is no doubt that security and stability in the Euro-Atlantic and Asia-Pacific regions are interconnected. "In this time of crisis, our dialogue with like-minded partners like Japan is key to solving global security problems," he said.
