Japan: Terrorism

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with his Japanese counterpart on action against terrorism. (245261)

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs discussed international efforts against terrorism in Afghanistan during a meeting with his Japanese counterpart, Foreign Minister Nakasone, on 26 September 2008 in New York. In this context, we welcome the recent Japanese extension of their contribution to Operation Enduring Freedom in the Indian ocean.

The UK continues to work with Japan (and other partners) within the G8 to counter international terrorism by exchanging ideas and developing best practices in areas such as law enforcement, transport security and capacity building.
