MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss bilateral cooperation with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and, probably, further high-level contacts at a meeting in Beijing on the eve of the Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation /APEC/ summit.
“Putin and Abe are expected to discuss prospects for mutually beneficial co-operation in trade, economy, investments and the humanitarian and other spheres and to exchange views on major international agenda,” Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said.
The sides are not holding negotiations on the dates for Putin’s visit to Japan at present but the issue may arouse at the meeting with Abe, Ushakov said.
“It does not mean the visit dates would be coordinated,” he said. I have no idea whether Japan’s counterpart will bring up that issue but I cannot rule it out. As any question the sides will care to raise will be discussed.”
Earlier, reports said that Putin’s visit to Japan was scheduled for this autumn but later the preparations had been suspended over Ukraine’s crisis.
“Dates are not being coordinated at the moment,” Ushakov said.
