TOKYO, April 7. /TASS/. Development of partnership relations with Russia meets Japan’s interests, say excerts from the Blue Book on Diplomacy, which the TASS bureau in Tokyo received from the Japanese Foreign Ministry on Tuesday.
The document stresses the importance of this relationship in the conditions of a changing strategic scene in Asia and the Pacific. The Ministry says that three Japanese-Russian top-level meetings and a meeting at the level of foreign ministers were held in 2014 in the light of events in Ukraine.
Along with it, the report acknowledges certain complications in the ties between Tokyo and Moscow, saying that Japan and other countries of the G7 continue putting pressure on Russia for attaining what it calls "a constructive position on the Ukrainian problem".
But in spite of difficulties in the wake of events in Ukraine, Japan continues dialogue and cooperation with Russia in other areas. Specifically, the two countries are holding consultations in the economy, the energy sector, healthcare, urban development, and agriculture.
The Foreign Ministry also makes known its plans to keep up the efforts towards the signing of a peace treaty with Russia, which the two countries never signed formally since the end of World War II.
