Japan imposes sanctions on Russia over Crimea

Published: 03.18.14, 07:44 / Israel News

TOKYO - Japan on Tuesday imposed some modest sanctions on Russia for its recognition of Crimea as an independent state - suspending talks on relaxing visa requirements between the two countries and talks on investment, space exploration and military cooperation.


Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said in a statement that Japan does not recognize the outcome of Crimea's referendum to split from Ukraine "It is regretful that Russia's recognition of the independence of Crimea interferes with the integrity of Ukraine's sovereignty and territory," Kishida told reporters. "We cannot overlook Russia's attempt to change the status quo by force." (AP)
