TOKYO, May 18. /TASS/. The meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Vladivostok in September will create additional conditions for organizing Putin’s visit to Tokyo, Russian Deputy Prime Minister and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev told Japanese media on Wednesday.
"I am confident that the meeting planned between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Vladivostok will be another step toward cooperation. It is absolutely obvious that this will create additional conditions for organizing a reciprocal visit. I definitely cannot decide anything on behalf of the president but I am confident that reciprocal steps will follow," Trutnev said.
He noted that expanding cooperation between the two countries is the right way. "We are neighbors, our economies are complimentary. There are many technologies in Japan that can be useful for Russia. At the same time, Russia’s Far East is rich in mineral resources, fish, resources that are now sparse not only in Japan but also in the whole world, which can create additional conditions for development," he concluded.
