The Japanese FM for his turn, expressed content about his presence in Iran calling Prime Minister Abe’s visit to Iran historic.

“Iran is an important country in the region and we believe that everybody will benefit from less regional tensions,” he said, “Japan is ready to do all is needed to reduce tensions.”

During his two-day stay in Tehran, Abe will meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Wednesday and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei the day after.
