TOKYO, November 6. /TASS/. Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev arrived on Sunday on an official visit to Japan, where he will have talks with that country’s leaders and will make a trip to the city of Hiroshima hit by U.S. atomic bomb at the very end of World War Two, the Japanese foreign ministry said.
On Monday, the Kazakh leader will have talks with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and will be received by Japan’s Emperor Akihito. In the focus of Abe-Nazarbayev talks will be economic relations between the two countries, including cooperation in the nuclear energy sector, development of oil fields and production of rare earth elements.
The visit’s program also includes Nazarabayev’s speeches at the Japanese parliament and the Tokai University. Also on Monday, he will attend a business forum that is expected to bring together more than 1,000 Japanese and Kazakh businessmen.
On the last day of his stay in Japan, November 9, Nazarbayev will visit Hiroshima where he will deliver a speech calling to abandon nuclear weapons.
"Japan, like Kazakhstan, has been hurt by nuclear weapons and our people understand each other well in this sense," Nazarbayev said earlier in an interview with the Japanese mass media. "Me speech in Hiroshima is meant to demonstrate that the world powers must consolidate to abandon nuclear wepoans."
Japan is paying major attention to the development of relations with Central Asian countries. The Japanese prime minister and a representative delegation visited Kazakhstan during a tour of the regional countries in October.
