(Statement by Foreign Press Secretary Yasuhisa Kawamura)

August 30, 2016

  1. 1. I was deeply shocked and feel indignant at the terrorist attack that has taken many lives and left even more injured on August 29 in Aden City. I offer my deepest condolences to the victims and the bereaved families, and my wish those injured a quick recovery.

    2. Japan strongly condemns such acts of terrorism which targets innocent people as totally unacceptable, and reiterates that in no circumstances can any act of terrorism be justified.

    3. Japan hopes that the people of Yemen will stand united to overcome the challenges facing them. Japan will continue to support efforts for the stability in Yemen in cooperation with the international community.
