  • Description

    The Japanese deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Takso Miki, arrived in Cairo on Friday (Dec. 14) in an attempt to persuade the Arab nations to lift their oil embargo against Japan.

    After his talks in Cairo Mr. Miki is expected to fly to other Arab capitals to discuss the oil crisis.

    The importance of the mission to Japan is indicated by Mr. Miki's entourage of 20 high-ranking parliamentarians and government officials.

    Japan has been particularly hard hit by the international oil embargo. All of Japan's oil is imported and already severe restrictions have been imposed in an attempt to keep essential industries and services in operation.

    The Japanese government has already drastically revised the country's expected growth rate for next year. government officials have also predicted that if the oil shortage does not end soon Japan could experience its lowest growth rats since World War Two.
