TOKYO, November 6. /TASS/. The visit of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to Japan could offer a platform for strategic partnership between the countries, CEO of state-run Rosneft Igor Sechin told a conference on the Russia-Japan energy cooperation in Tokyo on Friday.
"I agree with you the visit of Russia’s president will be clearly an important historic benchmark in development of relations between the countries," he said, adding it "will offer conditions and platform to make us strategic counterparts to use the economic and geographic advantages our countries have, to use the long-lasting relations of trust, which, despite of certain political discussions, still unite our countries and our peoples."
The company’s head said Rosneft would participate directly in preparations for Putin’s visit "and from the very beginning."
"I would say our company will fill the president’s plane, as the fuel complex at the airport where his plane is based belongs to our company," he said. "Thus, it will be our pleasure to deliver the Russian president to Japan so that his visit is successful."
Japan’s Deputy Minister of Economy, trade and Industry Takayuki Ueda said the issue of visit "of course, has been discussed at the respective diplomatic level, and the Japanese side wants to have it at the best convenience."
