Thursday evening’s Nikkei and Friday morning’s Yomiuri, Mainichi, and Sankei wrote that Prime Minister Abe told a Lower House Budget Committee session on Thursday that he is planning to visit the UAE, Jordan, Israel, and the Palestinian Autonomous Areas during the Golden Week holidays in late April and early May. Abe stated that he would like to strengthen Japan’s relations with these nations not only in the energy sector but also in a range of areas including economy, security, and cutting-edge technology. This will be his first visit to the region in three years. Mainichi wrote that although the premier had originally planned to go to Iran, he decided to skip Tehran out of consideration for the United States.
