“The future of space is collaborative,” Blinken said. “Through this agreement, our nations have strengthened their cooperation in space and here on Earth. We will go further and learn even more together.”

The signing is the highlight of the Prime Minister’s visit Fumio Kishida in Washington, his first since taking office in 2021.

“I expect this agreement to vigorously promote Japan-US space cooperation and expand areas of cooperation for the Japan-US alliance, which is stronger than ever,” Kishida said.

NASA and the Japanese government finalized a previous agreement in November 2022 confirming Japan’s contribution to the Gateway mission as part of a commitment to long-term lunar exploration cooperation with NASA under the Artemis program. Japan was also one of the original signatories of the Artemis Accords.
