Faure has first round of discussions in Tokyo

President Faure Gnassingbé arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday at 15h (local), for a five-day official visit during which he will be welcomed by Emperor Akihito and will hold talks with Prime Minister Naoto Kan, a survivor motion of censure which nearly cost him his job.
Mr. Gnassingbé is accompanied by a ministerial delegation comprising of, mainly, the chief of diplomacy Elliott Ohin.
The president of Togo is the first head of state to have an official visit to Japan since the earthquake of 11 March.
Upon arrival at the hotel, Faure received the Dean of African Diplomatic Corps, the Zimbabwean ambassador to Japan, Stuart H. Comberbach (photo). The two discussed the consequences of the earthquake of last March on the Japanese economy.
30 African countries are represented in Tokyo including Togo, which opened an embassy a few months ago.
The Togolese President also met the representative of Senegal, Bouna Diouf Sémou on issues relating to trade between Africa and Japan.
"Japan is a country open to bilateral cooperation, but it is a demanding partner for compliance with international norms and quality standards, particularly in agriculture," said the diplomat on the way out of the discussion.
