Palestinian demonstrator dies week after being shot by Israeli forces

Airstrikes from unknown source cause massive explosions at Iranian weapons depot in Syria

Abe on Tuesday told Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas his country would not move its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, official media reported, two weeks before the United States completes its controversial relocation.

The Japanese leader affirmed his country's support for a political process based on the principle of a two-state solution and its readiness to contribute to any effort to achieve peace.

Representatives of Japan, Jordan, Israel and the Palestinians held a meeting on the Jordanian banks of the Dead Sea on Sunday night to discuss their "corridor for peace and prosperity" initiative.

Kono on his first visit as foreign minister, but his fourth to the country, said bilateral ties were booming.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has wrapped up his Middle East tour by holding talks with his Israeli counterpart, Benjamin Netanyahu.




The meeting took place a day after Abbas delivered a widely criticized speech in which he said that Jews in Europe were massacred for centuries due to their "social behavior related to usury and banks".

"The future belongs to those who innovate". "The number of Japanese companies operating in Israel has doubled in the past three years and Japanese investments have grown twenty-times in that time", Kono said.

The challenge targets the use of live fire against demonstrators who pose no immediate threat to human life, the only condition under which the use of lethal force is permitted under worldwide law.

"I know the good relationship between your people, and the influence you have with the Palestinians", Rivlin told Kono.

News of the United States president's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital broke with decades of policy and angered Palestinians.
