  • Description

    A top-level Japanese Government delegation arrived in Algeria on Friday (January 18) as part of an extensive diplomatic drive to explain Japanese foreign policies and to secure stable supplies of oil.

    The Japanese officials headed by Mr. Zentaro Kosaka, a senior parliamentarian who lost his Cabinet seat in a reshuffle in November last year -- had talks with Algerian Commerce Minister Layechi Yaker during the two-day visit.

    The delegation's tour of North Africa and the Middle East was scheduled to cover Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Lebanon, Jordan and the Sudan.

    The tour followed an earlier one by the Japanese Deputy Prime Minister, T???keo Miki, who visited eight nations to explain Japan's new pro-Arab stance in the Middle East in the light of the Arab oil cutbacks.

    Mr. Kosaka told the Algerian Commerce Minister he wanted to get a better understanding of the Middle East situation, which posed a serious threat to world peace and prosperity.

    Mr. Kosaka said modern communications had made the distance between Japan and Algeria irrelevant, and he saw a great future in the relationship between the two countries.

    Algeria -- which raised the price of its crude oil by 75 per cent on Thursday (January 17) -- is to send a delegation to Japan next week.
