Britain, Japan agree to strengthen support for Ukraine

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has held phone talks with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, agreeing to strengthen support for Ukraine and keep sanctions against Russia.

That's according to Japan Today, Ukrinform reports.

Both leaders agreed to deepen bilateral cooperation amid concerns over Russia's war on Ukraine and increasing military activities by China and North Korea, Japan's Foreign Ministry said.

According to the ministry, Sunak and Kishida confirmed that Japan and Britain will accelerate talks for early conclusion of an agreement that would enhance interoperability and collaboration between their armed forces, as well as of a deal to jointly develop a fighter jet.

The UK on November 2 sanctioned four oligarchs who have enabled Russian President Vladimir Putin to mobilize Russian industries to support his military effort.
