New ways of putting pressure on Russia will be on the agenda when Boris Johnson meets with his Japanese counterpart on Thursday.

The UK prime minister and Fumio Kishida are also set to agree on a new defence partnership between the two countries.

The reciprocal access agreement will allow British and Japanese forces to deploy together for training, joint exercises and disaster relief.

Mr Kishida’s first visit as PM will be marked with a RAF flypast.

The agreement – the first of its kind that Japan has signed with a European country – will boost the UK’s commitment to the Indo-Pacific agenda.
