MOSCOW, November 3. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has no plans to travel to Nagasaki during his visit to Japan in December, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.
"There are no plans to go to Nagasaki during this visit, a different scheme is discussed with our Japanese partners," the Kremlin spokesman said.
According to Peskov, preparations for Putin’s visit are going on as usual. "Preparations are in full swing," he added.
Speaker of Russia’s Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko, said earlier in the day during her visit to Nagasaki that Putin would visit that city as soon as he can. Nagasaki’s governor and mayor invited the Russian leader to pay a visit to the city in December. "Since the visit’s schedule is very busy, he will not be able to do so this time. He said though that he would visit that city at the earliest opportunity," Matviyenko added
Peskov earlier said that Putin’s visit to Japan is scheduled for December.
