Tokyo calls for reinforcing friendly ties with Tehran: Japan

Tehran, IRNA - Japan's top government spokesman Katsunobu Kato said Tokyo intends to deepen friendly relations with Tehran.

"We hope Iran will play a constructive role in easing tensions in the Middle East and stabilize the situation under President-elect Raisi," Kato was quoted by a Japanese media as saying.

"Peace and stability in the region is extremely important to Japan," given about 90 percent of Japan's crude oil imports come from the Middle East, he added.

Judiciary Chief Ebrahim Raisi was announced on Saturday as the winner of the June 18 presidential election in Iran, scoring 17,926,345 of votes.
