The reaction of Asian countries to the Ukraine crisis helps show Russia and China that they cannot act with impunity when launching a war, the U.S. ambassador to Japan said on Monday. Rahm Emanuel made the comment in an online event hosted by the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Japan's ambassador to the United States Tomita Koji told the event that U.S. President Joe Biden's planned visit to Japan this month would send a signal that Washington was still focused on the Indo-Pacific even as Russia conducts a war in Ukraine.
