Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull met with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on 18 January, with trade and defence at the top of the agenda. They have announced plans to hold a joint military exercise for the two nations’ air forces in Japan later in 2018. They also agreed to a range of other measures aimed at strengthening defence relations, while their respective trade ministers will establish a ministerial economic dialogue. Meanwhile, Turnbull said signs of improved relations between South Korea and North Korea will not necessarily lead to denuclearisation on the Korean peninsula.
