He showed his belief that Abe will continue to pay attention to strengthening bilateral cooperation, particular in personnel training, strategic infrastructure development and post-pandemic recovery, for the sake of the two countries’ peoples, as well as for peace, stability, cooperation and development in Asia-Pacific, and the world as well.
