TOKYO, September 11. /TASS/. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed his intention to organize an official visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Japan by the end of the year, Kyodo news agency reported on Friday.
The news agency quoted the premiere as saying that he wanted the visit to take place at an appropriate time by the end of the current year.
Two months ago Putin’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists it was undecided when the Russian president would pay an official visit to Japan.
"At the moment, no exact dates have been set," Peskov told journalists in mid-July, adding that "Russia remains open to any contacts, particularly with one of its closest neighbors such as Japan.".
