TOKYO, March 06, 6:46 /ITAR-TASS/. Japanese Senior Vice Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Yoshitaka Sakurada said on Thursday he would represent Japan at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games in Russia’s Sochi.
On Wednesday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that his government had taken a decision to send an official representative to the Paralympics opening ceremony. “There are various international tendencies,” he said at the parliamentary hearing. “But our position is to be cautious about inhaling politics into the Olympic and Paralympic movement”.
Japan’s Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida also said that the schedule of political contacts between Russian and Japan had not been changed. Thus, in line with the previously agreed programme of contacts, the Japanese foreign minister plans to visit Moscow in late April.
