TOKYO, March 30. /TASS/. Russia and Japan seek to employ all tools of bilateral cooperation, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov said on Thursday ahead of another round of strategic dialogue between the two countries.
"We will work well and use all mechanisms of developing cooperation," Titov stressed. The sides will discuss on Thursday an array of issues related to bilateral ties and international topics, he noted.
"The context of the upcoming visit of (Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo) Abe to Russia is especially important," the diplomat said.
The Japanese prime minister will pay an official visit to Russia from April 27 to April 28, the Kyodo news agency reported on Wednesday citing government sources. It noted that Abe could visit Moscow or St. Petersburg during his trip.
Japanese Deputy Foreign Minister Shinsuke Sugiyama said "positive dynamics is seen" in developing bilateral relations. He stressed that the Japanese side plans to be well-prepared for the upcoming visit of Abe to Russia. "In all areas, including issues of peace treaty and an eight-point cooperation plan," he said.
The previous round of the Japanese-Russian strategic dialogue was held in October last year. Its participants discussed a broad range of issues linked to bilateral relations, and also the situation in the Asia-Pacific Region and in the Middle East.
