The foreign Ministers of the Central Asian countries will arrive in Tokyo on December 23 for consultations.

The Foreign Ministers of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan will arrive in Tokyo on December 23 for consultations, which, in particular, will be attended by Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. One of the topics of discussion may be the preparation of a meeting of the leaders of the Central Asian states and Japan, the Asahi newspaper reported.

On the eve of the ministers' arrival in Tokyo on November 24, the Association of Members of Parliament for Friendship between Japan and Central Asian Countries was established. It was headed by the deputy chairman of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, former Prime Minister Taro Aso.

Regular consultations between the foreign Ministers of Japan and the five Central Asian countries began in 2004, but recently these contacts have failed due to restrictions related to the pandemic. At the same time, in April, Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi held video talks with colleagues from these states. The previous time their face-to-face meeting took place in 2019.
