TOKYO, November 16. /TASS/. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to hold separate meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and US president-elect Donald Trump later this month, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Wednesday.
"In the period of November 17 to 23, Prime Minister Abe will visit the United States, Peru and Argentina," he said. "The possibility of holding separate meetings with president-elect Trump and President Putin is currently being studied."
Earlier reports said the meeting of the Russian and Japanese leaders, the third this year, will be held on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum summit in Peru on November 19-20.
The Japanese prime minister said on Wednesday he considers that the upcoming meeting with Putin is a "high value opportunity." "I want it to bring concrete results," the Kyodo news agency quoted Abe as saying at the meeting with the leader of the New Komeito party, Natsuo Yamaguchi.
Speaking on the possible meeting with Trump, Abe stressed that he seeks to build trust relations with the US president-elect. "It is important to create the atmosphere of trust so that we could discuss any issues."
Abe may become the first foreign leader to hold an official meeting with Trump after his victory in the US presidential elections.
