Japan says it won’t give in to terrorism, but will not send troops

Japan told the world’s nations Thursday it will never give in to terrorism and will continue providing non-military assistance for the fight against the Islamic State and other extremist groups — but not military troops or equipment “at this point.” Japan sent Foreign Ministry Press Secretary Yasuhisa Kawamura to the United Nations to deliver the message that following the “outrageous

and inhumane” beheading of two Japanese hostages by Islamic State fighters “we will stand resolutely as a member of the international community combating terrorism.” Kawamura said the government is considering sending high-level representatives to an international conference on countering violent extremism hosted by President Barack Obama in Washington on Feb. 18 as part of its effort to play a leadership role.
