ANTALYA (Sputnik) — Japan is currently in close cooperation with france on the issues of anti-terrorism fight and security, he said.

"Prime Minister [Shinzo Abe] said he would like to promote cooperation with the international community….. in the fight against terrorism," Kawamura said at a press conference at the G20 Summit in Turkey.

The Japanese government also pledges to strengthen domestic security measures to ensure the safety of citizens, Kawamura said.
