Egyptian Ambassador in Tokyo Ayman Kamel held a meeting on Thursday with Japanese Justice Minister Takashi Yamashita, where they discussed boosting bilateral ties in the legal field.

Kamel and Yamashita discussed exchanging visits by senior officials and the transfer of expertise in the judicial and legal domains, according to a statement issued on Thursday by the Egyptian foreign ministry.

In light of the recently issued Japanese foreign labour recruitment law, Egypt's ambassador also discussed with Yamashita the possibility of finding employment opportunities in Japan for Egyptians who are Japanese language graduates.

Their talks also tackled Japan's preparations for the 14th United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, which will be held in Kyoto in April 2020.

In this regard, the Japanese minister expressed his keenness to see a high-level Egyptian participation in the conference.

The meeting comes within the framework of strengthening Egyptian-Japanese relations, which have witnessed great momentum on the political, economic and cultural spheres since President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi's visit to Japan in 2016 preceded by the Japanese Prime Minister's visit to Cairo in 2015.
