MOSCOW, February 20 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev congratulated Emperor of Japan Akihito with a successful surgery.
“I was happy to learn about the successful outcome of Your surgery,” says a telegram, the text of which was posted on the Kremlin's website on Monday. “I sincerely wish you a speedy recovery.”
Health condition of 78-year-old Akihito has considerably deteriorated after the March 11, 2011 tragedy. He took all the troubles of his country with great pain, but, despite being unwell, personally made ··several trips to the affected area together with his wife Michiko.
On Saturday, February 18, the Japanese monarch successfully underwent a complex heart surgery, and on Monday he was transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular hospital ward where he will undergo rehabilitation treatment.
