KYOTO, October 3. /TASS/. Russia's state nanotechnology corporation Rusnano has a number of concrete proposals for Japan should Russian-Japanese relations change for the better, Rusnano CEO Anatoly Chubais said in an interview withTASS.
"We have been acting in a very Japanese style as far as Japan is concerned," said Chubais who is attending the Science and Technology in Society (STS) forum in Kyoto. "Even if we don’t see any results, we are still moving forward."
According to him, "judging by what [Japanese] Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said in Vladivostok and by President Vladimir Putin’s statements, it seems the time has come for some political breakthrough."
"We have high hopes for it," he added.
He said he had discussed Rusnano proposals with Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hiroshige Seko who is also in charge of economic cooperation with Russia.
"I hope he will visit Moscow in November and participate in a commission meeting together with Ulyukaev (Russia’s Economic Development Minister)."
Chubais added that a long list of projects was already under discussion including the Rusnano projects.
"We expect to receive the first positive signals in November", he noted.
In early September 2016, Putin and Abe met at the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia’s Pacific city of Vladivostok. They agreed to bolster bilateral dialogue and decided to meet again in November in Peru, at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. In December Russia’s president is going to visit Japan.
