According to Koichi Hagiuda, Japan’s Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Asian nation will face “difficulty” to promptly follow suit in cutting off Russia’s oil imports.

Hagiuda told reporters, that “Given Japan has its limit on resources, we would face some difficulty to keep in step immediately” with other nations.

As stated by Mexico’s Finance Minister Rogelio Ramirez de la O on Wednesday, the South American nation will raise the production of staple foods, such as beans, corn and rice, in efforts to tame the record-high consumer price inflation.
