TOKYO: Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are “two countries that cannot compensate for the living and industrial activities of the Japanese people,” says senior ruling party politician Amari Akira.
Al-Ammari is the Honorary Chairman of the Parliamentary Friendship Council and has close ties with the Middle East. He played a key role in Japanese energy policy and stressed the importance of these relations.
Japan imports the same amount of oil from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates; This is about 35 percent from both countries and more than 70 percent overall. “They are two countries that have no alternative to the living and industrial activities of the Japanese people. More sustainable energy supply is the lifeblood of Japan. In this sense, the Middle East is connected to this lifeline.
Al-Ammari has called for the presidency of an international conference in Saudi Arabia.
“I met with the current Minister of Energy, Prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, when he was the Deputy Minister of Oil in Japan and Saudi Arabia,” he said.
“When I ate with him, I said: I heard that the starry sky in the desert in Saudi Arabia is so beautiful because the air is so fresh. I heard it was as cold as watching the stars fall, so I’ll see it one day.
To which Minister Abdul Aziz replied: Next time you come, I will camp in the desert, so look at the starry sky together.
It was a good plan, but I replied that I could not eat the goat’s brain, but do not worry, said Minister Aptelogis. He said, when he eats everything in Japan, why not try Saudi food? It would not be a good habit. Of course he made fun of it. With such informal exchanges, I feel the Middle East coming closer to me.
Amari was a key partner behind the political success of Prime Minister Kishida, Secretary-General Modaki, Foreign Minister Hayashi and the Senate Secretary-General, and was keen to lead Japan forward.
“What we need to do now is bring back a new team to build Japan creatively,” he said. “I am reforming the university as my primary research source. I also created a 10 trillion yen fund to promote university reform.
