Global South has to understand why Russia mustn’t be supported - Morawiecki.

Warsaw and Tokyo discussed the issue of finding ways to convince the countries of the Global South not to support Russia, in particular in the matter of Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said this during a joint statement to the media with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida in Warsaw on Wednesday, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.

The head of the Polish government noted that Poland and Japan border Russia on two opposite sides, but both perfectly understand "the threat posed by Russian imperialism to world peace and international order."

He thanked his Japanese counterpart for his visit to Kyiv, which proves Tokyo's support for Ukraine's independence.

According to Morawiecki, a new geopolitical order is being conceived, so countries that have the same view on global peace, in particular Poland and Japan, should act together.

He pointed out that the visit of China’s President Xi Jinping to Russia "causes concern because the Russia-China axis is dangerous."

"We are trying to convince China not to support Russia in its aggressive international policy," Morawiecki stated.

According to the prime minister, today it is extremely important that the nations of the Global South understand Russia's policy of aggression.

"The Prime Minister of Japan and I talked a lot of how to show Russia’s policy to the countries around the world, to the Global South, so that there is no support for Russia," the Polish prime minister emphasized.

In turn, Kishida noted that this is the first visit of the Japanese prime minister to Poland in the last 10 years. He thanked Poland for providing assistance to Ukraine in light of Russia’s armed aggression.

The prime minister of Japan emphasized that in order to stop Russia's war against Ukraine, the unity of countries that have similar views on the ongoing aggression is required, while tough sanctions against Russia must continue to be imposed and Ukraine must be supported.

Kishida recalled that the day before he visited Ukraine, where he declared Tokyo's solidarity with Kyiv. He assured that Japan, which chairs the G7 this year, "will continue to cooperate with Poland and the entire international community, and will show leadership in supporting Ukraine."

Kishida emphasized the need to strengthen the strategic partnership with Poland on many issues, including security, economic, and energy cooperation.

He also noted that Japan would deepen cooperation with the Visegrad Group, the Bucharest Nine, and the Three Seas Initiative.

The Japanese Prime Minister said that in view of the growing burden Poland is bearing due to Russia's long-term aggression against Ukraine, Japan will perceive Poland as an official recipient of development aid, despite the fact that the country’s economy is developing well.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on March 21, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida arrived in Kyiv at the invitation of President Volodymyr Zelensky. During the trip, Kishida visited Bucha, the town just outside capital Kyiv where massive atrocities committed by the invasion forces at the outset of the war were exposed. The head of the Japanese government laid flowers at a local church and observed a moment of silence for the victims of war.

During a joint press conference with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine in Kyiv, Kishida called on the Russian leader Vladimir Putin to hear the position of the global international community and immediately stop his aggression against Ukraine. President Zelensky and Prime Minister Kishida signed a joint statement on a special global partnership between the two countries.
