His Excellency Shinzo ABE
Prime Minister of Japan
The Hague, 14 October 2014
Subject: Royal State visit to Japan by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands
Our King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima will be visiting Japan on an official State visit, 29th to 31st October 2014. In the past visits by our respective Royals have been controversial, accompanied by anger and demonstrations. Not this time. The Dutch from former Dutch East Indies hope that in this visit you and your government find the opportunity to reflect on and to acknowledge the war time history between Japan and The Netherlands. Our countries centuries’ old relationship was based on commerce and mutual respect. The relationship during World War Two however was bitter and sour. It never regained the trust and regard as before.
