David Cameron arrives in Japan for start of Asia tour

The prime minister has arrived in Tokyo, Japan, on the first stop of a visit to East and South East Asia aimed at encouraging trade deals with the UK.

David Cameron is expected to agree a new defence deal with Japan which would see both countries develop weapons together for the first time.

He said it was part of his job to “load up an aeroplane full of business people” to “fly the flag for Britain”.

Mr Cameron is also expected to visit Burma this week as part of his tour.

The trip follows praise by foreign governments for by-elections held in Burma on 1 April in which Aung Sun Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy won 43 of the seats contested.

Downing Street says it will not confirm the prime minister’s travel plans for the visit.
