This is worth watching. Shinzo Abe is like the Ronald Reagan of Japan. PM Abe believes in his country. He believes in our country. And he believes in our alliance, and in a better future based on law, order, and principles. His speech down in Australia a while back also is worth watching.
I witness the products of Japan's efforts in many countries, including today in Myanmar, and earlier in Philippines, Afghanistan, Thailand, and more. A person does not have to look far in poor countries to find JICA (the Japanese version of US Aid), or Japanese NGOs or Japanese private citizens helping locals with big projects, and small.
Come to Myanmar and see for yourself. Japanese projects are all over the place.
Go to Philippines and see for yourself. In Afghanistan, Japan spent billions of dollars to help Afghans. Japanese will never get anything in return for the work they have done in Afghanistan. That is a face of Japan that few people see.
I see what Japanese are doing in many countries. It is a great honor that Prime Minister Abe spoke before our Congress.
