Tokyo (Jiji Press) – Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa said Friday she will visit six countries, including Africa and Southwest Asia, from Friday to May 6.

Kamikawa told a news conference that she will “engage in diplomacy that serves as a bridge between the Global South and like-minded countries, including the Group of Seven countries.”

She visits Madagascar, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, France, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

In Africa, she plans to deepen bilateral economic ties to lay the groundwork for a ministerial meeting on African development that Japan will host in Tokyo in August.

In France, she plans to attend a meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.

In Sri Lanka, Kamikawa will announce support to overcome the economic crisis while calling for steady financial and administrative reforms.

Kamikawa also said Japan will station officials at six diplomatic missions in five countries, including South Africa and Britain, to support the overseas expansion of Japanese companies.
