Message from Foreign Minister MOTEGI Toshimitsu on Eid al-Fitr

May 12, 2021

I would like to extend my best wishes to all Muslims in Japan and around the world upon Eid al-Fitr.

Japan has steadily valued friendship and trust it built with Muslim countries even under difficult circumstances due to the pandemic of COVID-19. I myself contributed to the strengthening of relations in various fields such as politics, security, economy and culture by enhancing cooperation and coordination through meetings and multilateral conferences in Muslim countries as well as with Muslim foreign ministers last year. I am determined to maintain the close cooperation with Muslim countries in order to contribute to the regional and international peace, stability and prosperity.

On this occasion of Eid al-Fitr, I would like to express Japan’s solidarity with Muslim friends and sincerely wish you all for health and happiness, as well as for overcoming COVID-19 as soon as possible.
