Moscow/Sputnik: UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday congratulated Yoshihide Suga on winning the race for the position of Japan's new prime minister and expressed hope to cooperate and further develop relations between Tokyo and London.

"Congratulations to @sugawitter on becoming Japan’s Prime Minister. I hope your appointment and the historic Free Trade Agreement we secured last week take the already rock solid relationship between our countries to new heights," Johnson said on Twitter.
