In remarks after a trilateral summit with Japanese Prime Minster Fumio Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, US President Joe Biden commended the Japanese leader on his response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Answering questions from a Japanese reporter at Camp David in Maryland, Biden said Japan has "showed strong leadership through the G7 as well and contributed to a significant amount of financial and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine as well as nonlethal military equipment. And they've joined so many other nations in holding Russia accountable through international sanctions."

"Russia has already lost. It cannot meet its original objective which it stated. It's not possible. ... Japan's leadership from day one, it has been critical making it clear that the consequences for war extend well beyond Europe," he said.

The invasion is not "only a European problem; there hasn't been that kind of invasion since World War II," Biden added.
