    Japan will work with the next US President to promote peace and prosperity in both the Asia-Pacific region and the world, the outcome of the election will not affect high level of bilateral relations, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Wednesday.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — The Republican candidate triumphed over his Democratic challenger, Hillary Clinton, in the November 8 presidential election. He gained 276 electoral votes, which is more than 270 needed to win. Clinton has reportedly called to concede her defeat.

    "There is no change to the fact that the Japan-US alliance is the cornerstone of Japanese diplomacy, and Japan will cooperate closely with the United States for peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and the world," Suga told reporters shortly before Donald Trump announced his victory as quoted by Kyodo news agency.
