    Biden began meeting Friday afternoon with Suga to discuss issues including human rights, Taiwan and supply-chain resilience.

    China is expected to loom large in the talks, Biden’s first in-person meeting at the White House with a foreign leader since taking office.

    “The United States and Japan have a big agenda ahead of us,” Biden said as reporters were briefly allowed in the room. “Our cooperation is vital, in my view, and I think in both our views, to meeting the challenges facing our nation, and ensuring the future of the region will remain free and open and prosperous.”

    Suga said he wanted to “reaffirm the new and tight bond between us and in order to realize a free and open Indo-Pacific. There are many common challenges as well as emerging global issues including Covid-19 and climate change.”
