MOSCOW, July 22. /TASS/. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Russia will take place before Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Tokyo, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said on Friday.
"We expect Mr Abe to visit us first," Morgulov said answering a question on possible dates of Putin’s visit to Japan.
The leaders of Russia and Japan met in Sochi at the beginning of May. Soon after the meeting, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said that Putin may visit Tokyo by the end of 2016.
On June 22 another round of consultations was held in Tokyo on issues of peace treaty between Russia and Japan. Among participants in talks were Japanese government's envoy for relations with Russia Tikahito Harada and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov. The new round of talks on peace treaty may take place before the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok scheduled for September 2-3.
