AJC head thanks Japan's anti-terror mission

American Jewish Committee President E. Robert Goodkind expressed his gratitude Tuesday on Japan's anti-terror mission and its role in the Middle East peace process, Japan's Foreign Ministry said. Meeting with Japan's newly appointed Foreign Minister Taro Aso, Goodkind also thanked Japan in joining other 190 members of the UN General Assembly to adopt a landmark resolution last week that will create the first international day of commemoration for the 6 million Jews and other victims of the Nazi Holocaust, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. The International Day of Commemoration will be held every year on Jan. 27.
