TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Barack Obama talked about the Ukrainian crisis over the phone, Japanese media on Friday.
Kyodo news agency said the two leaders held a 40-minute talk.
Earlier in the day, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference that Tokyo will respond to sanction against Russia in close contact with other countries, although he urged all parties to act prudently over the situation.
Obama ordered sanctions on those responsible for Moscow's military intervention in Ukraine, including ban on travel to the United States and freezing their U.S. assets.
