Japan agreed Monday to contribute 4.3 million U.S. dollars to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for its regular Food Aid Program, reported Jordanian media.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso, who is now in Jordan on a visit, signed the agreement with UNRWA's Deputy Commissioner- General Filippo Grandi, according to the report.

Taro Aso was quoted as saying that his government supports the UNRWA for its programs and activities to promote the well-being of the Palestinian refugees and facilitate their human development.

Taro Aso arrived here late Sunday, starting a regional tour which the Japanese Foreign Ministry said was "part of Japan's efforts to actively engage in promoting the Middle East peace."

He is also due to visit Israel and the Palestinian territories. The office of Salam Fayyad, prime minister of the Palestinian caretaker government, said on Sunday that Fayyad would meet with him.
