The Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of the Milli Gengesh of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov met with the Prime Minister of Japan Fumio Kishida in Tokyo today. At the meeting, which was held at the international guest house Akasaka Palace, the sides discussed the possibilities of extension of mutually beneficial cooperation, reports Goshen News edition.
The Japanese politician thanked the head of the Halk Maslahaty of the Turkmen Parliament for the words of condolences and the memorial dinner held in Ashgabat in memory of the tragically departed Shinzo Abe.
“We are very grateful for the support we have received from you” - Kishida said.
More than four hundred thousand people came to pay tribute among them the representatives of 700 delegations from 27 countries and international organizations.
On July 8, 2022, an attempt was made on Abe around midday during his street performance in the city of Nara during the election campaign before the elections to the upper house of the country's parliament. He died in hospital shortly afterwards.
The politician was urgently hospitalized, but despite all the efforts of doctors, his life was cut short at the age of 67.
Abe was cremated on July 12 after a private funeral at a Tokyo temple.
Before Shinzo Abe, only one other head of government was awarded a funeral at the state level – Shigeru Yoshida in 1967.
