United States urges Asia to impose sanctions on Russia

The United States is in talks with the governments of the Asian countries, calling on them to join in sanctions imposed by the West against Russia, Reuters reported on Wednesday, citing a senior official in the U.S. State Department.
“It is certainly our hope that countries in this region, which includes many significant commercial and financial centers, will join us in putting this kind of pressure on Russia,” the official said.
He said that in this way the United States wants to develop a coordinated, multinational response to Russian aggression in Ukraine.
As reported, among the countries in the region only Japan has currently supported sanctions against Russia.
