MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian-Japanese negotiations on the top level will continue, because the countries have many reasons for this positive trend to develop in the future, spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
On September 6, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev had a telephone conversation with newly appointed Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, the Russian diplomat recalled. “There are all reasons to expect the development of the dialogue, including that on the top level,” Lukashevich said in reply to a question when such contacts are scheduled.
“I cannot report about concrete plans to you yet. But the contacts between the leaders of the countries took place and will take place. There are many reasons for this,” he said, adding that international conferences and an APEC summit are among these reasons. “All this gives good opportunities for these contacts,” the spokesman of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
