The governor said Japan was very dependent on the US in security issues.
“We have problems related to China, North and South Korea. That is why we need to rely on the US military potential,” Yoichi Masuzoe said, adding he wanted the Russians to understand what stood behind Japan’s decision to impose sanctions against Russia.
The governor also pledged to exert maximum efforts to improve bilateral relations between Russia and Japan.
Japan imposed the first round of sanctions against Russia on March 18, the day when Crimea officially reunited with Russia. It suspended consultations with Russia on possible facilitation of the visa regime and postponed the conclusion of three treaties with Russia - on investment cooperation, cooperation in space exploration and prevention of dangerous military activity.
In addition to that, Japan temporarily stopped issuing entry visas to 23 representatives of Russian official bodies and other persons on July 24. Their list, however, has not been published.
