Japan canceled the visit of the Foreign Minister to Russia

The Japanese government canceled a visit by Foreign Minister Fumio Kisida to Russia in late April because of the situation around Ukraine. According to the publication The Yomiuri Shimbun, citing its sources, the cancellation of the trip is associated with the US intention to isolate Russia in the international arena due to the inclusion of Crimea in its composition.

Kishida was supposed to take part in the G28 ministerial meeting on April 29 and XNUMX in Moscow. During the visit, he was expected to hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

A source in the Japanese government explained that Tokyo was looking for an opportunity to send the minister to Russia, but the island’s own negotiating policy with respect to Russia would not have been accepted by the international community.

On the night of Thursday it became known that the United States was suspending negotiations with Russia on European missile defense and that NASA was blocking all contacts with Russia, with the exception of cooperation on the ISS.
