The governments of Vietnam and Japan rejected this Sunday the use of force by Russia in Ukraine and reaffirmed their respect for international laws, during the visit of the Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, to Hanoi.
“We cannot accept the actions that seek a change in the ‘status quo’ by force in any region of the world,” said Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, together with his counterpart, Pham Minh Chinh, after meeting today in the capital. Vietnamese, pick up the local media.
Japan has condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and imposed sanctions on Moscow, while Vietnam, a historic ally of Russia, has avoided direct criticism and limited itself to asking to resolve the conflicts through dialogue.
Kishida, who has already visited Indonesia and tomorrow arrives in Thailand on a tour of Southeast Asia and will continue in Europe, also criticized the expansionist policy of China, with whom both Japan and Vietnam have territorial conflicts, through the construction of artificial islands where to place military troops.
