Tokyo urges unified response to Russian-Chinese military cooperation in Asia

Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi expressed concern about the military cooperation between Russia and China in Asia and said that Russia’s special operation in Ukraine has shaken the world order and requires a unified response from the international community.

Speaking during a meeting of foreign ministers of European and Indo-Pacific countries in Sweden today, Saturday, the Japanese foreign minister pointed out that “the security situation in Europe and the Indo-Pacific region has become indivisible after Moscow’s comprehensive invasion of Ukraine.”

“Otherwise, similar problems will arise in other regions, and the current system, which has fundamentally supported our peace and prosperity, may be overthrown,” Hayashi said.

Hayashi accused Beijing of “continuing and intensifying its unilateral efforts” to change the status quo in the East and South China Seas by force and to intensify its military activities around Taiwan.

“In addition, China and Russia are strengthening military cooperation, including joint flights of their bombers and joint naval exercises in the vicinity of Japan,” he said.
