Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called on Ukraine’s leader Saturday to sincerely implement a cease-fire after fighting broke out between government forces and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine earlier in the week.

Abe issued the call during his meeting in Kiev with President Petro Poroshenko on the way to the two-day Group of Seven summit in Germany starting Sunday. The Ukraine crisis is expected to top the agenda at the G-7 summit amid persistent fighting that continues even after the cease-fire deal struck in February between Ukraine, Russia, Germany and France.
