TOKYO: Japan’s Foreign Minister KAMIKAWA Yoko paid a courtesy visit to Jordan’s Prime Minister Bisher Hani Al-Khasawneh on Monday at Tokyo’s Imperial Hotel. 

At the outset, both officials agreed to continue to work closely together and further deepen cooperation in a wide range of fields. 

Prime Minister Khasawneh congratulated the two countries on their 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Jordan to further strengthen the bilateral ties.

According to the Foreign Ministry in Tokyo, both sides expressed serious concern about the critical humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, including the casualties of many children, women, and the elderly, and the further destabilization of the region. 

Minister Kamikawa said that Japan is making active diplomatic efforts, including at the UN Security Council and G7 forums, to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza. 

Kamikawa expressed hope that a humanitarian ceasefire would ensure an environment in which humanitarian aid operations can take place and lead to the release of the Israeli hostages quickly, and that a sustainable ceasefire will be realized. She called on the parties concerned to immediately act from a humanitarian perspective. 

Khasawneh explained Jordan’s efforts regarding the situation in Gaza, and highly praised Japan’s efforts and expressed his desire to continue working closely with Japan.

On bilateral relations, the Prime Minister explained Jordan’s efforts to modernize its economy, and expressed his gratitude for Japan’s consistent support to Jordan.

Minister Kamikawa stated that Japan will continue to provide support so that Jordan, which is the cornerstone of regional stability, can play its role firmly.
