PHNOM PENH -- Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida met with Cambodian leader Hun Sen on a visit to the Southeast Asian nation Sunday, part of an overseas tour that included a push to plug holes in international efforts to isolate Russia.

Though Kishida and Hun Sen agreed that Russia's invasion of Ukraine violates the United Nations Charter, the joint statement issued after their talks neither mentioned Russia by name nor condemned its assault.
