50 Japanese digital mammographs donated to Iran

'My dad is having cancer and, given the late diagnosis of his illness, he is not in a good health at the moment,' said Mitsuo Saito, at a ceremony in the headquarters of the Health Ministry.

He noted, “So, I know early detection of cancer is very important. The area of health is one of the most important areas of cooperation between Iran and Japan, which is being pursued in joint meetings and talks between the two countries, because Iran has vast potential in health and medicine.”

Japan's ambassador to Iran said, “diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer require more attention. The cooperation of Iran and Japan in the humanitarian field, especially in the health and medical fields, is of great importance and we are ready to continue our cooperation.”

Japan and Iran have close and long-standing relations in various economic, political and cultural spheres, Saito said.

“The Japanese government has consistently supported Iran's commitment to Iranian Deal and has served the interests of the Iranian people. Iran-Japan relations are entering their 90th anniversary.
