    Background: Moroccan Prime Minister Ahmed Osman met with his Japanese Counterpart Takeo Miki in Tokyo on Tuesday (17 February) for discussions aimed at furthering bilateral relations.

    No details of the meeting were released but informed sources in Tokyo said the two Prime Ministers had preliminary talks on the question of a huge loan to Morocco to enable it to increase its national railway capacity.

    These sources also said that views were exchanged on the current political situation in the Middle East.

    Diplomatic observes believe that Mr. Osman's visit, which is being made at the invitation of the Japanese government, underlines Japan's increasing interest in furthering relations with Middle East countries.

    In an interview with a Japanese newspaper, Primes Minister Osman was quoted as saying that Morocco did not want to start a war with Algeria over Western Sahara.

    The newspaper also quoted the Prime Minister as insisting that Morocco had no intention of holding a referendum in Western Sahara as a referendum would only serve to divide the territory.
