LIMA, November 20. /TASS/. Moscow and Tokyo are thoroughly preparing the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Japan and the meeting between Russian President and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinz· Abe was largely dedicated to that, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday.

Japan’s Foreign Minister is expected to come to Moscow shortly, who will also hold talks on preparation of the visit, Peskov said. "Many issues still have to be discussed, so that the president and the prime minister moved on "ready ground" during the visit," he said.

The trade turnover dropped 36% year-on-year, Putin said at the meeting. "The President noted that natural causes related to the global situation exist for that along with reasons conditioned by consequences of political steps of third nations," Peskov said.

Specific cooperation projects were also discussed during talks, he added.
