Jeddah - Yasmine El Tohamy - TOKYO: Prime Minister Kishida Fumio hosted a Ramadan iftar on Monday, with around 25 Japan-based ambassadors and heads of Islamic missions attending.

The event, described as a “networking night,” was held at the prime minister’s office in Tokyo.

Diplomats attending the event included the ambassadors of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen, Algeria, and Palestine.

The prime minister welcomed his “invaluable friends” from the various Muslim countries, as well as members of the respective parliamentary associations linked with those countries.

“Throughout the course of its long history, the Islamic world has incorporated things that were not part of its own world and in the spirit of harmonization and tolerance, it has translated those things into part of their own rich and diverse societies and cultures,” he said. “Japan has always embraced our ties with such Islamic societies. I, for one, have visited numerous Muslim countries and have sought to deepen the bonds of trust and friendship through dialogues with their leaders.”

Kishida reminded his guests about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, which he called “a dangerous situation,” adding: “The life and dignity of every human being should be equally honored and protected. Our hearts are with the ordinary citizens who are still suffering at this very moment in Palestine.

“Today, the world stands at an important point in history. Against such a backdrop, it is more important than ever before that Japan and Muslim countries work hand in hand with each other and advance our mutual cooperation.”

The prime minister added Japan has worked hard to try and reduce tensions in the conflict, and has continued to provide humanitarian aid. Japan, he said, would continue to work with Muslim countries “to realize a world where a Palestinian state can coexist with Israel.”

In closing, he wished everyone peace and prosperity.
