ABSTRACT
The article discusses the stance of Japan on the matter of Israeli settlements in Jerusalem and the West Bank Palestinian territory. A statement was issued by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs deploring Israel's approval of the construction of 900 housing units in Gilo. Japan also urged Israel to freeze settlement activities. Israel has received criticism on its plan to build on Palestinian land in Jerusalem. Japan supports the Road Map, which is seen as the only path leading to a co-existence of Israel and Palestine. Hasan Abu-Libdeh of the Palestinian Authority visited Japan to urge Tokyo to support the efforts to secure statehood.
