WASHINGTON, April 10 (UPI) -- Delegates from Japan met Thursday with U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. for the second Japan-U.S. Cyber Dialogue.

U.S. Department of State Coordinator for Cyber Issues Christopher Painter led an inter-agency delegation that included representatives from the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the Defense Department.

Japanese Ambassador Jun Shimmi, who leads Cyber Policy and is the Director General of Foreign Policy Bureau, led the Japanese delegation that comprised representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Security Secretariat, Cabinet Secretariat (Situations Response and Crisis Management), National Information Security Center, Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office, the National Police Agency, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and the Defense Ministry.

The delegations met to "discuss wide-ranging bilateral cooperation on cyber issues, including critical infrastructure protection, capacity building, cybercrime, national security issues in cyberspace, and our common approach in relevant international venues."

The State Department expressed its hope prior to the meeting the dialogue would "deepen our shared understanding of our respective organizations, policies, and operational architectures, as well as identify opportunities to strengthen bilateral cooperation mechanisms going forward."
