The ICRC in Japan

ICRC president Peter Maurer and Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe discussed humanitarian issues and cooperation.

The ICRC Mission in Japan (ICRC-Tokyo) focuses on enhancing humanitarian debate in the country, contributing towards Japan's foreign policy on humanitarian issues and seeking political and financial support from its government. ICRC-Tokyo works closely with the Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) on public relations; and together, the two bodies promote the teaching of humanitarian law, organize joint field operations, mobilize support from the public for the international activities of the JRCS and recruit Japanese delegates for the ICRC’s international operations.
