G7 countries agree on unity in Ukraine support: Hayashi

8 Comments

Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven (G7) advanced economies confirmed in a meeting in New York on Wednesday their cooperation in extending support for Ukraine, Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said.

The statement of support follows President Vladimir Putin's announcement that Russia will enact its first wartime mobilization since World War Two and annex swaths of Ukrainian territory, while threatening to use nuclear weapons to defend the country.

"We reconfirmed that G7 countries work together in supporting Ukraine and responding to food and energy security," Hayashi told reporters at a news conference in New York.

As part of additional sanctions against Moscow, Japan plans to ban exports to Russia of chemical weapons-related products, and to expand the list of Russian military-related organizations to which exports are prohibited, Hayashi said.

He also said the G7 members reconfirmed the importance of peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.

U.S. President Joe Biden said this month U.S forces would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, his most explicit statement on the issue, drawing an angry response from China.

Japanese are ingenious in creating enemies and problems.

Someone in Tokyo thinks that after the Ukrainian conflict, Japan will no longer border Russia?

In general, in vain.

By the way Russia today starts a close military cooperation with Iran... and North Korea.

New jets and rockets and so one.

Don't know what planet you're on but on this one it's Russia that's not only creating enemies and problems but going that one step further and murdering civilians.

I'm sure they'll be terrific. I suppose Ukraine will just have to make do with state-of-the art American and European weaponry.

Ukraine is not Russian property.

Not US/NATO

Remember about coup d'état 2014

So - here a result.

Ukraine is not one nation land.

And Ukraine is not property of Mr Zelenskiy.

Neither the US nor any Nation is invading Ukraine. Ukraine is not even a NATO member.

Ukraine is not the property of Vladimir Putin.

Russia has no excuse for it's act of barbarism and war crimes.

In this conflict, Japan is on the wrong side.
