Groundbreaking agreement Between Ukraine and Japan on security

Signing of the Accord on Support for Ukraine and Cooperation between the Government of Japan and Ukraine

On Thursday, during the G7 summit in Apulia, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a 10-year agreement aimed at supporting Ukraine in the face of the ongoing Russian invasion. Under the agreement, Japan commits to supporting Ukraine despite limitations imposed by its constitution and Japanese law.

As a result of the agreement, Japan will provide Ukraine with "non-lethal equipment and materials" and assist in treating wounded Ukrainian soldiers. The agreement also obliges Japan to "actively contribute to the economic revival of Ukraine and the modernization of its industry," while Ukraine commits to continuing reforms in areas such as the judiciary system and anti-corruption measures.

Long-term Japanese Support for Ukraine. Countries Signed Agreement

Prime Minister Kishida also announced plans to organize an international meeting next year to discuss ways to clear landmines in Ukraine. The agreement also stipulates that both governments will consult within 24 hours, at the request of either, in the event of a future Russian military attack on Ukraine.

President Zelensky described the agreement as "groundbreaking" and thanked Japan for its "unwavering solidarity". Since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Tokyo government has provided Kyiv with assistance totaling $12.1 billion.

On the same day, Zelensky also signed a security cooperation agreement with U.S. President Joe Biden. Similar bilateral agreements have been signed with Ukraine by 15 other countries so far, including the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, in accordance with last year's NATO summit in Vilnius. All G7 countries and 25 other nations have committed to signing such agreements.
