WASHINGTON/TOKYO -- Japan will consider providing financial support to boost production of liquefied natural gas in the U.S., Nikkei has learned, as it seeks to lessen its energy dependence on Russia following Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.

Koichi Hagiuda, Japan's minister of economy, trade and industry, is visiting the U.S. and will meet with Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Wednesday. They expect to agree on forming a bilateral consultative body devoted to green energy and energy security.
