Japan will make comprehensive decisions to ensure the country's energy supply is stable while cooperating with the G7 group amid fresh U.S. sanctions on Russia, Industry Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura told reporters on Monday.

This month, the United States sanctioned a number of companies providing engineering, construction and other services to the Russia-led Arctic LNG 2 project where Japanese shareholders hold a combined 10% stake.

Nishimura added that Japan was still examining the impact from the sanctions which do not cover the project itself, or the shareholders. (Reporting by Yuka Obayashi and Katya Golubkova; Editing by Muralikumar Anantharaman)
