MOSCOW, September 18. /TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida will focus on promotion of the negotiation process aimed at conclusion of a peace treaty between Russia and Japan, Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
"Japanese Foreign Minister [Fumio] Kishida's working visit to Russia will take place on September 20 to 22," the Russian Foreign Ministry said." His talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are scheduled for the visit as well as [Kishida’s] participation in the ninth session of the Russian-Japanese intergovernmental commission on trade and economy."
"During the upcoming meeting, the ministers will exchange views on the whole range of bilateral agenda and also will focus on topical international issues of mutual interest," the ministry said in a commentary. "Issues related to the negotiation process aimed at conclusion of the peace treaty are due to be on the table. The Russian side clearly accentuates that the promotion in this aspect cannot be possible if Japan fails to recognize the post-war historic realities."
Also, Lavrov and Kishida will discuss bilateral cooperation aimed at ensuring global and regional security.
"Along with bilateral dialogue formats, including a mechanism of Russian-Japanese consultations between Security Councils, which have been in effect since March 2014, the Russian-Japanese project, which was held under the auspices of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, on training Afghan drug police at the Russian Interior Ministry’s Domodedovo Staff Training Institute has been successfully implemented," the commentary said. "The ministers are expected to exchange views on steps for tightening cooperation in this sphere.".
