Japan called for stronger security ties with Southeast Asia as Tokyo looks to boost alliances at a time of growing territorial tensions with China.

 

Vice-minister level representatives from Japan and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations began a two-day gathering at a Tokyo hotel, with several participating nations embroiled in sovereignty rows with Beijing.

 

The meeting is the first high-ranking defence dialogue of its kind since hawkish Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took office late December following a landslide victory in general elections.
