The Japanese and French foreign ministers have agreed that the Group of Seven major countries should play a key role to build international order after the COVID-19 pandemic is over. 

The agreement came at a meeting between Japan’s Toshimitsu Motegi and France’s Jean-Yves Le Drian in Paris on Thursday afternoon (local time), according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry.

The two ministers also agreed to promote bilateral cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.

Earlier in the day, Motegi had a teleconference with his German counterpart, Heiko Maas, who is currently in home quarantine after a security officer was confirmed to have contracted the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Motegi and Maas confirmed that their countries will continue to cooperate in the fight against the pandemic and toward realizing the Free and Open Indo-Pacific vision.
