TOKYO, December 2. /TASS/. Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida has not ruled that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will pay a visit to Russia.
Kishida said in an interview with the Nikkei newspaper that dialogue at the highest level between Russia and Japan is very important but the future will show how it will develop.
