JAPAN said that it has decided to expel eight Russians including diplomats, the Japanese Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

The decision came as Japan had been working with the United States and the European countries to step up pressure on Russia.

“As a result of our country’s comprehensive judgment, we have requested the expulsion of eight diplomats from the Russian Embassy in Japan and officials from the Office of the Trade Representative of the Russian Federation,’’ Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hikariko Ono said.

She said Russia’s ambassador to Japan had been informed of the decision in a meeting with Japanese vice Foreign Minister Takeo Mori.■
