ABSTRACT

Joe Biden's administration that launched on January 20, 2021 converted the diplomatic and security policy from American First policy promoted by the Trump administration to policy enforcing cooperation with allies. Such policy of Biden administration corresponds to the national benefit of Japan which is to prevent the instability of regional situation that could be caused by China or North Korea in advance. From this point of view, Suga administration will proactively take advantage of the U.S. government's policy of containment toward China and solving North Korean nuclear issue. Recognizing such issue, this study suggests that the Japan's foreign policy is expressed consistently regardless of the change of government in the U.S based on the distinct characteristics of Japan and the institutional definition of the U.S-Japan security system.
