with Yoriko Kawaguchi, Foreign Minister of Japan
15 September - Discussions between President Kavan and F.M.
Kawaguchi centered on Iraq and UN reform. Japan supports
adherence to UN resolutions concerning Iraq and the situation
is a test of UN legitimacy. UN reform requires a new impetus
so that the nine-year-old problem could be moved forward.
President Kavan appreciated activities of Japan in the field
of conflict prevention and underlined that this approach
corresponds to his own priorities.
