Israeli PM talks Iran, trade with Japanese counterpart

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe meets Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah

Prime Minister will come back to Japan in the near future.

The Palestinians will not engage in supporting the USA in bringing peace to the region, Secretary-General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Saeb Erekat said during a meeting with Swedish State Secretary of Foreign Affairs Annika Söder in Ramallah yesterday, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported on Monday.

The Japanese leader said his government supports a two-state solution to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with the final status of Jerusalem to be settled through negotiations between the concerned parties.

Abe arrived in Israel, accompanied by his wife and the delegation, which includes heads of the largest Japanese companies and corporations.

Abe is slated to hold a small meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which will be followed by an extended working meeting chaired by the two prime ministers.

After the meeting, Abe and Netanyahu met with senior Japanese business people.




In the evening, Netanyahu and his wife Sara will host Abe and his wife for an intimate dinner at the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem.

The first visit of Shinzo Abe to Israel took place in January 2015.

Japan is reportedly consulting with Israel on its counter-terrorism efforts ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Abe added that "I brought a business delegation from Japan to Israel, which includes so numerous CEO's from Japan, so I do hope that you'll have a productive discussion with the business leaders in the summit meetings that we are planning to have".

Netanyahu said in a statement: "We see the tremendous growth in Japanese investments of Israel, Israeli investments in Japan, the technology opportunities".
