TOKYO, November 8. /TASS/. Shotaro Yachi, National Security Advisor to the Prime Minister of Japan, will visit Russia on November 8-10, the Japanese government said on Tuesday.
This is the first time Tokyo confirmed the visit. The Japanese government earlier repeatedly denied the possibility of the national security advisor’s visit to Russia.
Shotaro Yachi is expected to hold consultations with Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev, with whom he repeatedly met before in Moscow and Tokyo. Patrushev visited Tokyo last time in September 2015. In October 2012, the two sides signed a memorandum on developing relations in the sphere of security.
The Japanese security advisor’s visit to Moscow will become part of preparations for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Japan in December. Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hiroshige Seko recently visit Russia with the same goal. In mid-November, the bilateral Inter-governmental commission on trade and economic issues will hold a session in Tokyo. Among participants will be Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov.
