TOKYO, June 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Japan's government sets hopes on a dialogue between Russia and the new authorities of Ukraine and speaks against an immediate enhancement of sanctions against Moscow, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihido Suga told a press conference on Thursday.
"Russia expresses an intention to have a dialogue with Ukraine's new authorities, and we shall closely follow that. Sanctions should not be enhanced immediately. We set hopes on a solution to the problem through talks," Suga said.
In this connection, the Chief Cabinet Secretary highly appreciated the results of the G7 summit in Brussels, which had been also attended by Japanese Premier Shinzo Abe. "The statement issued by the Meeting clearly conveyed the idea that our countries (G7) come out against any attempts at changing the situation in the world through the use of force," Suga pointed out.
