          Ambassador Yamazaki outlined the basic thinking behind Japan’s foreign policy. He further touched upon such issues as global health, disaster risk reduction and climate change. He explained Japan’s efforts for empowerment of women, referencing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s speech to the UN General Assembly in September 2013. Finally, he elaborated on his Government’s position on the post 2015 development agenda.
