Post by KoKo » Thu May 05, 2016 9:03 am

Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said at a press conference here on Tuesday that Tokyo pledged its full-tilt support for development efforts in Burma.

“We’ll cooperate with the Myanmar government to create a climate that will benefit both the people of Myanmar and Japanese businesses,” the foreign minister said, specifically pointing out his country’s ambition to spur job creation, as well as development of the agriculture, education, finance, health care and infrastructure sectors in Burma.

“Japan will do as much as it can to help Myanmar with national reconciliation,” Kishida added, stating a desire to help the former pariah state re-engage internationally.

National League for Democracy (NLD) chairwoman and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Kyi said she appreciated Japan’s goodwill and generosity toward Burma.
