Federal Labor welcomes the signing of the Reciprocal Access Agreement between Australian and Japan.

We note the agreement signifies cooperation and a strategic partnership between the two nations, defending our values and interests in our region.

For some time, Labor has been urging more engagement to ensure we shape a region that’s stable, prosperous and where sovereignty is respected.

While we expect a detailed briefing in due course, Labor looks forward to strengthened cooperation with our close partner through the agreement signed today.
