Washington: The US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta congratulated over phone the new Japanese Defense Minister Itsumori Onodera on his appointment and reiterated his commitment to US-Japan relationship.

"Panetta reaffirmed that the US-Japan Alliance remains the cornerstone of peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region," the Pentagon said in a statement.

The two discussed their shared commitment to implementing the April 2012 joint agreement on the realignment of US forces in Japan, it said.

"The Secretary expressed that he looks forward to working with Minister Onodera to continue to enhance cooperation between the two allies and to modernize and update the alliance," the Pentagon said after the conference call.
