Japan, Ukraine to Agree on Swift Info Sharing over Russia

Japan, Ukraine to Agree on Swift Info Sharing over Russia

   Tokyo, June 10 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy are expected to hold a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of a three-day Group of Seven summit in Italy from Thursday, Japanese government sources said Monday.
   At the meeting, the two sides are expected to conclude a bilateral agreement on Japan's long-term support for Ukraine's recovery and reconstruction. It will include a provision for the two governments to hold talks within 24 hours of a new Russian attack.
   The Kishida-Zelenskyy meeting will be the first in person since they met on the sidelines of the previous G-7 summit in the western Japan city of Hiroshima in May last year.
   Japan has so far pledged more than 12 billion dollars in aid to Ukraine. The new agreement will clarify Japan's readiness to provide non-lethal equipment, remove land mines and develop infrastructure.
   The two leaders will also confirm that their countries will accelerate work to prepare an agreement to share confidential information.
