U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel (L) chats with Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera ahead of Hagel's meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the Prime Minister's former official residence in Tokyo April 5, 2014. Hagel moved on Saturday to reassure Japan of America's commitment to its security, as Russia's annexation of Crimea raises eyebrows in a region facing its own territorial disputes with an increasingly assertive China.
