MOSCOW, September 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin met on Wednesday Japan’s former Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori to discuss the development of relations between the two countries, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
“Vladimir Putin received in the Kremlin Japan’s former prime minister, who is on a private visit to Moscow,” he said. “Vladimir Putin and Yoshiro Mori exchanged views on the current state of the Russian-Japanese relations and a number of problems of international agenda.”
“Putin and Mori know each other for more than ten years. They maintain friendly relations,” Peskov said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Russian president’s aide Yuri Ushakov confirmed that the Russian head of state and the Japanese former prime minister had had contacts for many years. “We believe this is a good channel for informal communication, for open discussion of these or those issues of bilateral relations,” he said.
Mori arrived in Moscow to take part in a Russian-Japanese forum organized by the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily and Japan’s Mainichi Shimbun newspaper.
