Mindful of the backlash from Palestinians over the United States' decision to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem, Abe told Abbas that Japan has no intention of moving its embassy there.

In an elaborate televised presentation on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed a massive trove of over 100,000 files obtained by Israel in a stunning intelligence operation. He said Iran has preserved all its nuclear plans, and that a country which didn't want nuclear weapons wouldn't have prepared these plans, much less preserved them.

In his meeting with Abe, Netanyahu reiterated that the JCPOA (Iran nuclear deal) was a bad agreement based on "Iran's lies and deceit".

He briefed Abe on the latest developments in the Palestinian territories and the importance of holding the Palestinian National Council on Palestinian political life. My most recent visit to Japan was spectacular. "It is a great partner in the Middle East for Japan". He will be received by Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.

Abe invited Netanyahu for another visit to Japan, and said he was pleased that there had been a dramatic rise in Japanese investment in Israel under his government.

"I do hope that Mr. And also I am very happy to note that there has been the dramatic increase in the Japanese investment to Israel under my administration", he said.

During his meeting with the Japanese leader, the King stressed that Japan is a strong partner for Jordan, and "we highly appreciate its leadership role globally", while Abe stressed that Tokyo would work on developing the "distinguished relations between our countries to the level of strategic partnership".

After the meeting, the prime ministers will meet with the Japanese delegation led by Abe.

"This is only the beginning", Netanyahu said.
