Japan and the UK are working together in a bid to cut Asia’s reliance on Russian oil. According to a 5 May article on Markets Insider, met Prime Ministers Fumio Kishida and Boris Johnson in London to finalise details of a security pact. The discussions are expected to result in an agreement to assist key Asian economies to ramp up develop­ment of green energy, allowing for countries to step away from Russian fuels. This meeting came after the European Union suggested a total ban on Russian oil imports.
