Japan said on Tuesday it would will take “appropriate action” on energy projects in Russia involving Japanese state-owned companies, as major Western oil companies led a withdrawal from Russia in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine.

Industry minister Koichi Hagiuda told a news conference that Japan’s decisions would be based on understandings reached in discussions with G7 nations and other governments over how to respond to the invasion, which Russia calls a “special military operation.”
