占冠村 訪問




2月23日、5月に北海道で予定されている島サミット開催の準備のため、外務省大洋州課の岩間課長とともに占冠村(シムカップ)を訪問しました。占冠村では大歓迎を受け、とても温かい交流ができました。 これから島サミットを通して、更なる交流を深めていきたいと思います。 日本と太平洋諸島国は同じ島国として、海でつながっています。今回お世話になった方々に御礼もうしあげます。来る5月には島サミットで再び会えることを楽しみにしております。

I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to the Mayor and people of Shimukappu Village, the officials and representatives of Hokkaido Government for the warm welcome and hospitality extended to me during my visit, with Mr. Kiminori Iwama, Director of Oceania Division of Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau, Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The visit was one among other ongoing events in preparation for the upcoming 5th Japan-Pacific Islands Leaders Meeting. Through the Summit, I sincerely hope that the friendly and cooperative relations between our people will be further enhanced. As island nations we share many things in common, and we are connected by the Ocean, it does not separate us. Thank you once again, and I look forward to seeing you all again in May.
