HONOLULU (Hawaii), November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow hopes for a deeper dialogue with Japan, President Dmitry Medvedev said at the talks with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Honolulu.
Medvedev meets with the head of Japan’s Cabinet for the first time after the change of government in that country last September.
“I hope that the political dialogue that exists between our countries and between our governments will not be interrupted, but will develop on an ascending trend,” he said.
Ahead of the meeting the Japanese side expressed its intention to discuss the territorial issue with Russia.
Russia, in turn, stressed the need to focus on energy cooperation and confirm its readiness to increase assistance to Japan in overcoming consequences of the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
