Japanese Defence Minister Nobuo Kishi said on Wednesday he would continue to look into further possible assistance for Ukraine after he held talks with his Ukrainian counterpart.

Ukraine's Oleksii Reznikov thanked Japan for its recent military aid, Kishi added.

Last month Japan shipped helmets and other non-lethal military kit to Ukraine via a U.S. Air Force cargo jet.
