Ambassador: Japan may play key role in reconstruction of Ukraine

Japan, which has already allocated over $1.6 billion in aid to Ukraine, may become one of the leaders in forming an international fund for the reconstruction of our country.

"This year, Japan chairs the Group of Seven, and we expect it to become a leader in forming the reconstruction fund for Ukraine, which has already been created by the World Bank, and in which, I think, Japan will play a key role," Ukraine’s Ambassador to Japan Sergiy Korsunsky said in an interview with the Voice of America Ukrainian Service, Ukrinform reports.

According to him, the largest Japanese companies created special working groups and divisions that study the issue of reconstruction of Ukraine.

"And Japan means high-speed trains, bridges, overpasses, infrastructure, state-of-the-art automobile production, and metallurgy. I believe that Japan will play a key role in such large-scale projects," the Ambassador emphasized.

He also noted that Japan joined all the sanctions imposed by G7 and EU countries right from the start of the full-scale Russian aggression. In total, as of today, Japan's aid to Ukraine reached $1.6 billion. However, according to the Ambassador, this is only the official part and it is much larger in fact.

As reported, Prime Minister of Japan Fumio Kishida recently visited Washington, where he met with U.S. President Joe Biden. The leaders discussed, in particular, strengthening bilateral cooperation, countering Russian aggression, and containing China.
