Following a meeting with President Joe Biden in the Japanese city of Hiroshima on Thursday, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told reporters that Japan would maintain sanctions against Russia as well as its support for Ukraine.

Prior to the Group of Seven (G7) summit in Hiroshima, Japan, on May 19-21, Japanese and US leaders met to discuss a wide range of issues, from climate change and food security to tightening sanctions against Russia.

“We are in unanimity about working closely with like-minded countries, including the G7 members,” Kishida told reporters, “and we agreed to continue strict sanctions against Russia and strong support for Ukraine.”

According to Kishida, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy will attend a televised G7 meeting this Sunday. Along with the United States and Japan, the G7 includes the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, and Italy.

According to a White House statement issued earlier on Thursday, Biden and Kishida discussed ways to increase defense cooperation and counter China’s coercive behavior.

Furthermore, “we agreed to work together on common challenges involving China,” according to Kishida. “We will also continue to collaborate closely on various China-related issues.”
