Turkish Minister of Economy, Zafer Caglayan, Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs, Koichiro Gemba, and Japanese Minister of Economy, Industry and Trade, Yukio Edano, on Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding on economic cooperation between Turkey and Japan in Tokyo.
Speaking at the penning ceremony, Minister Caglayan said that the two countries shared deep friendship and helped each other during the earthquakes in Van and Japan.
Expressing his sadness for those Japanese who lost lives in recent floods in southern Japan, Caglayan said that Japanese citizen Atsushi Miyazaki who lost his life in an earthquake in eastern province of Van was the martyr of both countries.
Minister Gemba said that he was pleased to meet Caglayan again after his visit to Turkey in January. Minister Edano stressed that Turkey had an important position between Europe and Asia and had a very young population.
We wish to boost our economic relations with Turkey, Edano underlined.
While Caglayan's meeting with the two ministers continued behind doors, a group of anti-nuclear activists held a rally outside of the ministry.
