TOKYO, June 17 (Itar-Tass) —— Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda hopes to build a trust-based relationship with the Russian administration. He made the statement at the Sunday press conference in Tokyo ahead of visiting Los Cabos, Mexico, to attend the G20 summit on June 18-19.
Noda said he planned to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the summit sidelines. “It is very important to build a personal trust-based relationship,” he said. The bilateral meeting is still being coordinated.
Upon Putin’s inauguration in May 2012, Tokyo has repeatedly expressed its interest in a Japanese-Russian summit. It hopes to intensify negotiations for settling the territorial problem and signing a peace treaty with Russia. State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin and Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba agreed at the Tokyo meeting in the beginning of this week that it was necessary to continue the discussion of the territorial dispute in a calm atmosphere.
