ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani said that Pakistan accords high priority to its relations with Japan who was one of Pakistan's largest trading partners and biggest bilateral donors. The Prime Minister said this in a meeting with the Japanese Ambassador Chihiro Atsumi, who paid a courtesy call on him at Prime Minister's House Wednesday afternoon. Commending Japanese initiative to host Friends of Democratic Pakistan Forum and Donors of Pakistan meeting in Tokyo, the Prime Minister expressed the confidence that this meeting would go a long way in helping Pakistan to address its short, medium and long term balance of payment as well as developmental needs. He urged Japan to play its due role in building the capacity of Pakistan's Police and other law enforcing agencies through training and equipping them properly so that they could confront the challenges of militancy as well as law and order situation in the country. He also welcomed Japanese Premier Taro Aso's meeting with the US President Obama yesterday in Washington DC in which both leaders besides other topics reportedly discussed the ways and means to help Pakistan at this critical juncture. The Japanese Ambassador thanked the Prime Minister for his government's support in discharging of his responsibilities as Ambassador of his country in Pakistan and assured him that he would focus his energies to further strengthening the bilateral ties between the two countries.
