(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The visit of Kuwait-Japan Parliamentary Friendship League to Japan represented an opportunity to enhance relations between the two nations in all domains, head of the Kuwaiti delegation MP Dr. Khalil Abdullah said at the conclusion of their visit

Their meetings with Japanese officials and parliamentarians, including Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and House of Representatives Speaker Bunmei Ibuki, highlighted the shared desire to boost deep-seated Kuwait-Japan friendly and cooperative ties, Dr. Abdullah told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)



The discussions also touched on a possible review of Kuwait's offset program, which has been a major obstacle hindering Japan's investment in the Gulf country. "We will work toward the improvement of the offset program to help increase Japanese investments in our country," he said

"Moreover, to produce concrete outcomes with an eye to implement joint projects that benefit both countries, our team visited various facilities, where we learned about Japan's expertise and experience, and explored ways of mutual cooperation." The team inspected the Cancer Institute Hospital of Japan, an integrated control center for Tokyo subway network system and the country's first full-fledged ocean wind farm. Furthermore, the Kuwaiti legislators were invited by the Japanese government for a memorial service to commemorate the third anniversary of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, in which Emperor Akihito and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe attended




Following the twin disasters, Kuwait donated 5 million barrels of crude oil to Japan, equivalent to some USD 500 million, to support its reconstruction work. Hailing strong Kuwaiti-Japanese relations, Dr. Abdullah said Kuwaiti and Japanese peoples hold positive feelings toward each other. "I also learned how the Japanese people and officials respect His Highness the Amir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and appreciate Kuwait's support to the country in the wake of 2011 earthquake-tsunami disaster." He also underlined Japan's role in liberating Kuwait from the 1990-1991 Iraqi invasion



Meanwhile, Dr. Abdullah expressed his special thanks to Kuwaiti Ambassador to Japan Abdulrahman Al-Otaibi for his efforts in facilitating the visit, and roles in promoting and strengthening Kuwait-Japan in all fields

The Kuwaiti delegation, which also included MPs Faisal Al-Duwaisan and Majed Al-Mutairi, arrived in Tokyo on Sunday. Their visit came after the Japanese members of the friendship league visited Kuwait last month
