Russia-Ukraine War: Japan’s foreign minister on Wednesday urged Beijing to play “a responsible role” in the Russian attack on Ukraine. The Foreign Minister of Japan said this during the first talks with his Chinese counterpart in 6 months. Japan has joined Western allies in enforcing tough sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis, while Beijing has refused to condemn Moscow’s attack.
Japan’s foreign ministry said in a statement that Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi told his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi that Russia’s aggression was “a clear violation of the United Nations Charter and other international laws.” He urged China to play a responsible role in maintaining international peace and security, according to the statement.
According to Japan, the talks were the first between the two foreign ministers since November, due to concerns about geopolitical tensions. China and Russia are believed to be increasing coordination. Beijing has categorically refused to join the outcry over the Moscow attack.
Biden will go to Japan
US President Joe Biden will arrive in Japan this week after a halt in Seoul. He will hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and participate in a meeting of the Quad Grouping which includes Australia and India. This group is seen with the intention of putting pressure on China as it is increasing its economic and military intervention in the region.
China’s foreign ministry hit back after talks on Wednesday, saying it expected Japan to “learn from history, focus on regional peace and stability, and act with caution”.
“Bilateral cooperation between Japan and the United States should not lead to conflict between the camps, and should not harm the interests of China’s sovereignty, security and development,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry statement said.
