US Defense Secretary: China destabilizing Asia-Pacific region
U.S. Defense Secretary Dr. Mark Esper meets his Japanese counterpart, Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya, in Tokyo on Wednesday morning. This is Esper’s first trip to Japan since undertaking the position last month.
The two men expect to discuss North Korea's nuclear program and China’s aggressive ambitions in the South China Sea. Esper says China’s behavior is destabilizing the region.
