TOKYO, August 26 (Itar-Tass) – Japan wishes to hold consultations of deputy foreign ministers on the territorial problem with Russia before the end of this year, the Japanese newspaper Sankei said. According to it, the Japanese Foreign Ministry is already working towards the consultations.

Ex-Japanese Ambassador to India Akitaka Saiki is organizing the consultations. He will take a high-ranking position at the Japanese Foreign Ministry in September.

Russia and Japan are expected to discuss details of the consultations at the APEC Vladivostok summit on September 8-9, and the consultations might take place in Japan in October.

Tokyo is taking energetic efforts to resume the dialog with Russia on the settlement of the territorial problem and the signing of a bilateral peace treaty. Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba visited Russia in late July to negotiate with his counterpart Sergei Lavrov. The sides agreed “to carry on the dialog calmly.”
