Japan weighs in on Roxana’s situation with comments yesterday by Chief Cabinet Secretary Takeo Kawamura:

Japan said Monday that the jailing of Saberi was regrettable and that Tokyo hopes to be a mediator between Washington and Tehran.

“I regret such an outcome,” government spokesman Takeo Kawamura said.

“As for the future of the US-Iran relationship, which is showing signs of detente… I think we need to play a mediator role given that Japan has a warm relationship with Iran,” he said.

“Japan is paying close attention to the issue, even though Japan would not directly interfere in the matter.”
