Iran undermines world stability, Defense Minister Ehud Barak told Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda during an hour-long meeting in Tokyo on Wednesday.

"Iran ordered the execution over the past few days of a series of terrorist attacks that again demonstrate Iran's dangerousness and responsibility in undermining world stability," Barak said, adding that he had been in Bangkok for several hours before the attacks there on Tuesday.

Barak and Noda also discussed Iran's nuclear program, and Barak emphasized the importance Israel places on Japan taking part in sanctions.  Japan thanked Israel for its help after the devastating 2011 tsunami.

At the end of their meeting, Barak invited Noda to visit in Israel.
