Ambassador Emanuel says U.S., Japan “in lock-step” over Ukrainian crisis

Sankei reported online on Friday that Ambassador Emanuel released a statement earlier in the day on the increasing tension over Ukraine. He reportedly said: “The U.S. and Japan are in lock-step on Russia: any aggression toward Ukraine will not be tolerated and will come with severe costs.” The paper said the Ambassador also referred to Prime Minister Kishida’s call with Russian President Putin on Feb. 17 during which he directly urged the Russian leader to seek a diplomatic solution and welcomed the Japanese leader’s demonstration of “bold and firm leadership to preserve a rules-based international order.” Jiji Press and TV Asahi carried similar reports on Friday.
