TOKYO, April 15. /TASS/. The meeting of the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida has started in Tokyo.
Kishida said he is glad to welcome Lavrov in Japan. "I consider it important that we continue contacts," he said adding that inter-parliamentarian ties between the two countries are also developing. The Japanese foreign minister reminded that Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin is expected to make a visit to Japan in June.
Today’s meeting is very important, and Tokyo wants to discuss preparations for visit at the highest level and prospects of signing a peace treaty.
Lavrov, in turn, noted that "we value our good-neighborly relations and our contacts that have become regular." "I want to use our good relations to prepare the next meeting (between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe) well," he said adding that Moscow wants to continue dialogue with Tokyo on all issues and in all spheres.
