TOKYO, June 30 (Reuters) – Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said on Thursday he agreed with new Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is an “outrage” that should not be tolerated anywhere in the world.
“We shared a view that Russian invasion of Ukraine is an outrage that shakes the core of the international order, and that unilaterally changing the status quo by force should not be tolerated in any region,” Hayashi said.
Hayashi made the comment to reporters after making a courtesy call on Marcos.
