  • Description

    Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taken Miki met with Saudi Arabia's King Faisal on Wednesday (12 December) in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on the second-leg of a three-week tour of eight Middle East oil-producing countries.

    The Japanese Minister had met with Saudi officials the day before, and his meeting with King Faisal culminated his visit. He presented the King with a message from Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka which was believed to concern the Japanese attitude towards Middle East developments and Arab oil restrictions aimed at putting pressure on Israel to withdraw from occupied Arab territories.

    The wide-ranging tour, that is also taking Deputy Prime Minister Miki to Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, Syria, Iraq and Iran, is hoped by the Japanese to help develop closer ties between Japan and the oil-producers--thus easing the tremendous strain the oil crisis has put on Japanese industry.
