Moments of the Prime Minister Summer 2014

At the G7 working dinner in Brussels on June 4, 2014.

These photographs are a record of the various diplomatic and domestic activities of Prime Minister Abe in summer 2014. The prime minister was able to meet with the leaders of many countries to deepen understanding and strengthen ties, making possible joint international contributions. He also visited areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and other places in Japan closely connected to government policy, as well as introduced Japanese technology to foreign guests. We hope that these photographs can demonstrate Japan’s friendship with many countries as well as the prime minister’s character.
