The Prime Minister made the statement while extending his best wishes and thanks to the outgoing Ambassador of Japan to Papua New Guinea, H.E. Morio Matsumoto.
“There is a lot of interest from Japanese tourists to come to Papua New Guinea.
“This is for cultural visits, and importantly, visits to memorials and resting places for Japanese military personnel who died in World War II.”
The PM says PNG will always extend its highest respect for Japan’s war dead and the monuments that have been erected to honour their memory.
