"The officials, in particular, expressed concern over US’ plans to station nuclear weapons abroad, including in Europe," the spokesperson stressed. "The sides noted that consistent contact in the framework of security councils of the two countries is a key element in the issue of strengthening trust between Russia and Japan, and also plays an important role for ensuring security in the Asia-Pacific in general," he added.
