SINGAPORE, May 31 /ITAR-TASS/. During a meeting between Singapore’s and Japan’s prime ministers Lee Hsien Loong and Shinzo Abe, Singapore announced it would lift a ban on import of food products from Japan’s Fukushima prefecture, which had been introduced after the accident at Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant in March, 2011.
“It will add brevity to people living in Fukushima,” Japan’s prime minister said on Saturday thanking Singapore for the decision.
During the meeting, the prime ministers discussed regional security and stressed the importance of settling international conflicts by peaceful means. They also agreed to begin the work to review and make addendums to the bilateral agreement on economic cooperation of 2002 to develop further the trade and investment cooperation between Japan and Singapore. Singapore was the first country with which Japan signed an agreement on free trade.
