The diplomat affirmed Vietnam is a “very important, close friend and strategic partner” of Japan, that is why the two sides want to help each other in international issues.

With regard to the Asian-Pacific region, he said Japan looks towards Vietnam’s leadership in helping the point of view of regional countries be reflected.

Vietnam has “very important” history of overcoming the war and building peace and economy, and this will give the country a status in the security council, the Japanese diplomat stressed, adding that the experience will also help Vietnam give good advice and input into the organization.

He also shared his country’s experiences in solving challenges during the 22 years when Japan was a non-permanent member of the council, stressing on the need for thorough preparations to grasp the issues emerging in reality at different points of time.
