Japan suspended consultations with the Russian Federation on the territorial issue

The Japanese government decided to temporarily suspend consultations with Russia at the MFA level on the territorial issue, in connection with the situation in Ukraine, the agency reported on Friday Kyodo with reference to representatives of the Japanese Foreign Ministry.

April 28-29 postponed indefinitely the official visit of Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kisida to the Russian Federation, which was to take place these days. A meeting of the Russian-Japanese Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic Issues was also scheduled for the end of April, with Kishida co-chairing it from the Japanese side.

In March, Japan suspended negotiations with the Russian Federation on easing the visa regime and the beginning of negotiations on two other agreements, which became the softest of the sanctions adopted by the G7 countries. At the end of April, the Japanese government announced a ban on issuing visas to 23 Russian government officials "who could be involved in violating Ukraine's sovereignty."
