Kamala Harris described Anthony Albanese as 'ambitious' as they met for the first time today - before stressing that her comment was made with 'admiration'.

The leaders met in Tokyo ahead of the state funeral of former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, who was assassinated in July.

Mr Albanese thanked the US for its support in the Indo-Pacific while the US Vice-President pledged to work towards the 'combined goal of peace and security' in the region.

She lauded Australia's new emissions reduction target, saying Mr Albanese 'received admiration' for his climate goals.
