Netanyahu pledges support to Japan


Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered “any assistance” and stated that the “citizens of Israel stand beside you at this difficult time” in a letter to his Japanese counterpart, Naoto Kan. 

Netanyahu expressed his “deep sorrow” over the tragic earthquake and tsunami that recently struck the country, writing that Israel was prepared to help in any way needed in the disaster area. 

“I have no doubt that the strength and heroism displayed for the Japanese people will help overcome this terrible tragedy,”  said Netanyahu.

So far the Japanese have not requested help from Israel despite Israel’s offer of assistance immediately after the earthquake hit.
