Japanese. The death of Elizabeth II was a “great loss” for the international community
Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida today called the death of Queen Elizabeth II a “great loss” to the international community.
The death of the Queen, who led Britain through turbulent times in the world, is a great loss not only to the British people, but also to the international community,” he said.
Queen Elizabeth II “reigned for 70 years, the longest reign in history, and played an extremely important role for world peace and stability,” the Japanese leader said.
Kishida stressed that the monarch “contributed greatly to the strengthening of Japan-UK relations,” highlighting a visit to Japan in 1975.
“The Japanese government extends its sincere condolences to the British monarchy, the government and the people,” he concluded.
Queen Elizabeth II died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland after more than 70 years of the longest reign in UK history.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born on April 21, 1926, in London and became Queen of England in 1952 at the age of 25 following the death of her father, George VI, who came to reign when his brother abdicated.
After Elizabeth II’s death, her firstborn son assumes the duties of king at the age of 73 as Charles III.
