KAUNAS, Lithuania — Prime Minister Fumio Kishida decided not to hold a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, which had been arranged in conjunction with the NATO summit meeting in Lithuania. Kishida informed reporters on Wednesday in Kaunas, Lithuania.

“The NATO meeting prolonged significantly,” Kishida cited as his reason, and instead held a short informal talk with him.
