The U.S., Japan, and South Korea have emerged from Camp David with renewed commitments and a united front. President Joe Biden announced that the leaders of the three nations reaffirmed their commitment to cooperation in order to increase the security and prosperity of the three countries.
Of course, that means more military cooperation to stabilize the Indo-Pacific region from Chinese and North Korean aggression.
The leaders announced a new three-way hotline, enhanced intelligence sharing, and annual joint military exercises. The countries are also activating a data-sharing mechanism by the end of this year that is purported to help warn about ballistic missile launches.
The announcement angered Beijing, which already has high tensions with Washington right now. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin responded to the meeting, accusing the leaders of trying to start a new cold war.
