BEIJING, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. New sanctions that the Japanese government plans to impose on Russia over the crisis in Ukraine will just make matters worse, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei told ITAR-TASS Thursday in comments on specific information made public in several Japanese media outlets.
“We believe that introduction of sanctions or a threat of sanctions does not contribute to settlement of the issue and just makes the situation worse. The only way to settle the Ukrainian issue is a political solution to the situation,” Hong Lei said.
New sanctions will expand the list of individuals who are banned from entering Japan, and their assets and real estate will be frozen if found in the country, largest Japanese newspaper Yomiuri reported on Thursday.
