TOKYO, October 25 (Itar-Tass) - A first-ever Russian-Japanese meeting in the Two Plus Two format involving ministers of foreign affairs and of defence of the two countries will be held on November 2, the Japanese foreign ministry said on Friday.
The talks will involve Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, and Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida and Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera. The ministers will have bilateral meetings on November 1.
An agreement on consultations in the 2+2 format was reached at a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe earlier in this year. The two defence ministers are expected to focus on expanding contacts between the two countries’ armies and to exchange views on the security situation in East Asia, while the foreign ministers will discuss progress at talks on the peace treaty between the two countries.
