JNS.orgPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a series of meetings on Tuesday in Tokyo with top Japanese leaders, including Emperor Akihito, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, and Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera.

Netanyahu also conducted interviews with Japanese media outlets in which he highlighted Israel’s desire to strengthen economic cooperation with Japan.

Before his meeting with Kishida, Netanyahu reiterated the common threat posed by rogue states arming themselves with nuclear weapons.

“In your case, it’s North Korea, and we obviously sympathize and understand the predicament facing you,” Netanyahu told Kishida. “We are faced with such a rogue state in the form of Iran and its quest to develop nuclear weapons.”
