Japanese Prime Minister to Visit Cuba in September

TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to visit Cuba in late September in what would be the first visit by a Japanese government head to the Communist country, reported Japanese media Thursday.

According to official sources, Abe is expected to begin his visit after the United Nations General Assembly meet on Sep. 20 in New York, although the Japanese foreign ministry told EFE that nothing has been finalized as yet.

The visit is aimed at improving bilateral relations and expand Japanese investment in Cuba, reported the Kyodo news agency.

During his visit, Abe will meet former president Fidel Castro as well as current President Raul Castro, according to local television channel Asahi TV.

This will be Abe's first meeting with the former Cuban president.

In 2003, Fidel had met with the then Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi during a private visit in Tokyo.

In May 2015, Fumio Kishida was the first Japanese Foreign Minister to visit Havana and during his stay both countries agreed on bilateral talks and expanding economic ties.
