OSCE 1391st Reinforced Meeting of the Permanent Council (September 29 and 30, 2022)

On 29 and 30 September, Ambassador Mizutani attended OSCE 1391st Reinforced Meeting of the Permanent Council. 
In his speech, Ambassador Mizutani strongly condemned the sham referenda held in Russian-controlled areas of Ukraine, which infringed upon Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity in violation of the international law. Ambassador Mizutani further stated that Japan would not tolerate any attempt to unilaterally change the status quo by force or coercion, and would continue to work firmly on the two pillars of strong sanctions against Russia and support for Ukraine, in cooperation with the international community, including the G7 and the OSCE.
