Baku, 4 September 2018 – Newtimes.az

Japan intends to deepen the cooperation with the Caucasus region, Japan's Foreign Minister Taro Kono said at the press conference with his Georgian counterpart David Zalkaliani in Tbilisi.

"The Caucasus Initiative was proposed during my visit to Georgia. The initiative consists of two directions. The first direction is a support to development of human resources for the state building, and the second aims to provide support for making the Caucasus attractive in economic terms. This direction includes support to development of infrastructure and improvement of business environment," he said.

Taro Kono said that the stability in the Caucasus region is important not only for neighbours, but also for the world community: "The Caucasus connects Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The stability in the Caucasus is important not only for the region, but also for the peace and security of the international community."

In turn, David Zalkaliani welcomed Japan's Caucasus Initiative: "Tbilisi is ready for the new stage of cooperation with Tokyo. We welcome Japan’s initiative on the region and express our readiness for active cooperation."

Japanese FM Taro Kono will pay an official visit to Azerbaijan on September 5-6.
