TOKYO, November 2. /TASS/. Vice-President of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party Masahiko Komura will visit Russia next week, planning to meet Russia’s parliament lower house State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin, chief of Russian nuclear corporation Rosatom Sergey Kiriyenko and other Russian high-ranking officials, Japanese central TV channel NHK reported on Sunday.
Komura’s eight-day visit to Russia will be made from November 5 to 12. The prominent Japanese politician intends to discuss with Naryshkin the situation in Ukraine, several issues of Russian-Japanese relations, particularly the problem of a peace treaty, NHK reported.
“Japanese-Russian relations are in a quite difficult situation now and this would be good if a meeting with Russian politicians helps to improve it even slightly,” Komura said in his recent statement, noting that “I would like to have frank exchange of views over Ukrainian problem.”
Masahiko Komura, 72, heads the inter-party association of Japanese lawmakers for friendship with Russia. The vice-president of the Japanese ruling party will come to Russia within a delegation from Japanese association of martial arts Nippon Budokan which will hold demonstration fights within the current year of Russian-Japanese exchanges in this field.
