Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and his counterparts from Caribbean nations agreed Saturday in Tokyo to bolster cooperation in pushing for reform of the U.N. Security Council next year, the 70th anniversary of the global body’s founding.

Kishida also promised the foreign ministers of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), that the government will continue providing aid to some Caribbean countries no longer eligible to receive Japan’s official development assistance due to their economic growth rates, according to a joint statement issued after their meeting.
