TOKYO, June 14. /TASS/. The governments of Japan and Russia have started examining a possibility of holding the visit of Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida to Moscow this autumn, the country’s leading business daily Nikkei Shimbun has reported.
The top diplomat may visit Moscow with an economic mission of a group of Japanese entrepreneurs. "The goal of this mission is to prepare soil for the visit of President Putin to Japan this year," the newspaper says.
The sides may possibly achieve progress in solving the territorial dispute through deepening bilateral economic relations, according to the report.
The final decision on Kishida’s possible visit to Moscow will be however made "upon coordination with the US on the issue of increasing pressure against Russia due to the situation in Ukraine," the newspaper stresses.
Japan’s foreign minister has earlier said that he expected to pay a visit to Moscow. "I seek to make a reality the visit of the Russian president to Japan and also hope to go on a journey to Moscow soon," he said in a message to the participants of the third Russian-Japanese forum held in Tokyo in May 21.
