TOKYO, September 11 (Itar-Tass) - Japan considers Russia’s initiative to place Syria’s chemical weapons under international control timely.

“It is a rather difficult task, which requires a long period of time,” Deputy Chair of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party, former foreign minister Masahiko Komura told reporters on Wednesday. “However, this is a timely proposal.”

“At the same time the implementation of this initiative will not stop violence and will not improve the situation in Syria. It is necessary to start international negotiations and conduct them until a new government is created there,” he said.

At a news conference in Tokyo, Katsunobu Kato, Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary, also welcomed Russia’s proposal. “Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed support for Russia’s efforts,” he said.
