U.S. in talks with Japan after Aegis Ashore missile defense system suspension: official

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is in talks with Japan about its concerns with U.S.-made Aegis Ashore air defense radar stations, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday, after Tokyo suspended plans to deploy two of them.

“Right now our focus is having the technical discussion with our Japanese allies to understand the nature of the concerns and to determine the right path forward for this type of cooperation,” David Helvey, the acting assistant secretary of defense for Indo-Pacific security affairs, told reporters.
