U.S./Japanese Security Relationship Mutes Trade Bitterness, Says Former Ambassador Tom Foley

Tom Foley, former ambassador to Japan, discussed current and future issues in the relationship between the United States and Japan during the Weatherhead Policy Forum sponsored by SIPA's East Asian Institute. The existence of a security relationship between the countries mutes trade bitterness on both sides, said Foley. If we were taking retaliatory economic actions back-and-forth, it might begin to change the security relationship, which Foley sees as problematic for both countries.
