VLADIVOSTOK, September 2. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin believes it is important to render political support to the Russian and Japanese business communities in their cooperation drive. The Russian leader made this statement on Friday at a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.

Shinzo Abe has stressed that Tokyo was ready to make every effort to develop cooperation with Moscow.
"Japan is prepared to make every effort to develop Russian-Japanese cooperation in the region," Abe said, adding that he is ready to discuss a wide range of issues with Putin and praising a huge development potential of Russia’s Far East.
