Trade and economic relations and possible bilateral contacts were in focus of a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit in Turkey’s Antalya, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday.
