HOUSTON -- The U.S. will not ask Japan to limit its imports of Russian oil, a senior adviser of the U.S. State Department said, as the country does not produce enough of its own.

President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that his administration will immediately ban imports of Russian oil as a key part of its sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. The British government also announced it will follow by the end of the year.
