MOSCOW, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Friday that according to preliminary data, the visit of Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda to Russia should take place in January 2013.
The dates of the visit have been discussed for a long time, he said.
“It would already be unethical to say what dates were there, there were several dates,” Ushakov said. “At first, there were talks about October, then about November and December, January was also mentioned. There were even talks about February.”
At the same time he emphasized that he could not speak about the visit’s postponement, as no official date was named.
“I can say all truth, as I personally participated in all these games,” Ushakov said. “There were several meetings with the Japanese prime minister after Putin was elected president.”
One meeting took place in Mexico’s Los Cabos and another one – in Vladivostok, the aide said.
“I have been working on this issue since November behind closed doors,” Ushakov said.
