    These [TPP] talks are a way for the United States to rebalance its relationship with Asia, not just in military terms but in a way that taps into Asian economic optimism and that [avoids] highlighting China as a main security competitor. This rebalancing is actually an inclusive, expansive project.

    I think that the TPP is a very important component of the [U.S. rebalance toward Asia]. It's not just about military redeployment, it's also about constructing a regional economic, trans-regional economic architecture.

    I think this [TPP] ministerial is critical because you’re picking up the pieces of what happened last year. People are using this ministerial to get the sense of whether TPP has the momentum to move forward. At this juncture, where we are and the not very positive prospects for [trade promotion authority], the U.S. has to realize that Japan and every other TPP country is going to hedge and not put forward their very best offers.
