The Japanese Coast Guard has signed a memorandum of understanding with its counterparts in the United States and South Korea, confirming that they will work to strengthen cooperation.

The three countries will work together to help island nations in Southeast Asia and the Pacific improve their maritime security capabilities. They will also work to ensure political stability at sea, based on the rule of law.

Yasunori Watanabe, JCG vice commander for operations, attended the signing ceremony in California on Thursday.

Watanabe met with U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Area Commander Andrew Tiongson and discussed the importance of multilateral cooperation among maritime security agencies, including those of Japan, the United States and South Korea.
