Prime Minister Of Japan Speaks On Relations With Russia
June 19, 2015 21:36


The Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe should review relations with Russia and cancel the effective sanctions. This was said by the former Prime Minister of the country Yukio Hatoyama during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

“In my opinion, Japan has to move away from economic sanctions. But, unfortunately, the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has joined the decision to extend economic sanctions against Russia for another six months at the recent summit of the “Big Seven” – the agency quotes his words.

Hatoyama added that Moscow and Tokyo should create conditions for negotiations on territorial issues. Japan imposed sanctions against Russia in April 2014. The restrictions were imposed in connection with the annexation of the Crimea to Russia, as well as due to the growing geopolitical tension in Ukraine.

23 people (their citizenship was not disclosed) were denied entry to Japan. After some time the sanctions have been extended. They affected the financial sector. Besides, Tokyo reported on suspension of work on a number of economic agreements. Yukio Hatoyama served as a Prime Minister of Japan from September 2009 to June 2010. He was the Leader of the Democratic Party of Japan.
