On January 13, 2023, in the presence of Prime Minister Kishida visiting NASA HQ, Mr. Hayashi, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan, and the Honorable Antony Blinken, Secretary of State of the United States of America, signed the Framework Agreement between Japan and the United States of America for Cooperation in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space. Dr. Yamakawa, President of JAXA and Astronaut Hoshide also had the opportunity to witness this signing ceremony.

This agreement sets forth the basic terms and conditions for Japan-U.S. space cooperation for peaceful purposes as well as enables to promote space cooperation and increase efficiency for it between JAXA and U.S. agencies including NASA. We expect that this will further expand the field of cooperation including Artemis Project between Japan and U.S.
