TOKYO, October 4. /TASS/. Japan's Deputy Foreign Minister Shinuke Sugiyama is expected to visit Moscow next week where he will have talks with Russia's First Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir Titov, Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said on Tuesday.
The sides are expected to hold consultations in the format of the so-called Russian-Japanese strategic dialogue. The newspaper says the Deputy Foreign Ministers will discuss the situation around the Southern Kurile Islands and an eight-point economic cooperation plan drafted by the Japanese government.
Yomiuri believes Tokyo would like to step up dialogue with Moscow in the run-up to the Vladimir Putin's visit to Japan scheduled for December.
The Japanese Foreign Ministry said earlier the Foreign Minister planned a trip to Moscow ahead of Putin's visit. Kyodo news agency said the trip was to take place at the end of October.
