He pledged that Japan, as a country that has experienced many quakes in the past, will provide Turkey with quake-resistance technologies, assistance to rebuild its infrastructure and aid to restore its economy and industries.
The Turkish foreign minister expressed gratitude for Japan’s offer of assistance.
