 The government disclosed on Feb. 17 a new foreign policy of offering $15.5 million (about 1.83 billion yen) to support counterterrorism capacity in the Middle East and Africa in the wake of the killing of Japanese nationals and threats made by the Sunni insurgent group “Islamic State.” The government intends to strengthen antiterrorism measures in multiple ways, such as providing nonmilitary aid and attaching importance to dialogue with countries in the Middle East. Senior Vice Foreign Minister Yasuhide Nakayama will announce the aid measures during an international antiterrorism conference to be held in Washington on Feb. 17-19. (Abridged)
