MOSCOW, September 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has discussed bilateral relations in different sectors with Japan’s new Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda.
The telephone conversation took place at Japan’s initiative, the Kremlin press service said on Tuesday.
Medvedev congratulated Noda upon his election to the post.
Noda in turn expressed gratitude for Russia’s assistance in eliminating effects of the natural and technogenic disaster that hit Japan last March.
“During the talks the sides expressed their mutual intention for continuing a constructive dialogue at the high level. The Russian president and the Japanese prime minister called for further development of bilateral relations in trade, economy, investments, scientific, technological and humanitarian sectors on the basis of friendship and good neighbourliness,” the press service said.
