The Japan-Arab Economic Forum started today. One hundred twenty Japanese companies participated in the forum. During the summit, Japan agreed to participate in 38 development projects in Tunisia, including a solar power project. The summit was completed by the end of tomorrow.
Of course, when Europe saw Japan and Tunisia drawing closer to one another they became inconceivably enraged. They refused to allow this to happen. The idea of an African country becoming more prosperous, the idea of Japan gaining a foothold right next to their borders was too much for them to bear. So they decided to do something to thwart Japan and her plan to bring prosperity to Africa. That something would happen a few days later.
