TOKYO, January 17. /TASS/. Japan will allocate to the Middle East countries about 290 billion yens ($2.5 billion) for development of infrastructures and fighting terrorism, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, visiting Egypt, said in Cairo on Saturday.
The Japanese prime minister, who is in Egypt on an official visit, paid special attention to terror threats.
“If terrorism spreads the Middle East, it will affect the entire world,” Kyodo reports Abe as saying. Tokyo is ready to offer “non-military assistance” to countries, which are now involved in fighting the Islamic State, which acts in Iraq and Syria. For that purpose, Japan plans to allocate at least $200 million.
Japan’s prime minister is touring the Middle East countries, where he will visit Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Palestine and will have meetings with leaders of those countries.
