Abe: “Japan would Like to Maintain Friendly Relations with Iran”

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that Japan would like to maintain and develop friendly relations with Iran.

At the start of their meeting in Tokyo on Thursday, Abe expressed his concern at the growing tension in the Middle East.

US President Donald Trump has stepped up sanctions against Iran after Washington pulled out of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers in 2015, under which Tehran has limited uranium enrichment in return for freeing sanctions.

“Japan wants to maintain and develop its friendly relations with Iran,” Abe said.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono also said in a meeting with his foreign minister today that Tokyo would advise Tehran to remain committed to the nuclear deal.

Europe’s failure to comply with its promise of a unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear agreement by the United States over a year has forced Iran to suspend some of its nuclear liabilities.
