'We discussed Russia's ongoing efforts to intensify its aggression, and accordingly discussed urgent security needs. We agreed to continue the dialogue on expanding security cooperation,' the head of state added.
According to Zelensky, negotiations with Japan's PM are of particular importance both for both nations and for global security in general, as Japan currently chairs the G7, also being a member of the UN Security Council.
