Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will pay a working visit
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will pay a working visit to Japan on May 11-13 for talks with his Japanese counterpart, the Russian government announced on Monday.

"Talks with Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso and meetings with leading representatives of business circles, including as part of a prestigious Russian-Japanese business forum, and prominent Japanese politicians will top the agenda of the visit," the government's press service said.

The two premiers will focus on economic issues while searching for new possibilities of mutually advantageous cooperation in energy, IT, transportation, space and investment.

A number of intergovernmental cooperation agreements will be signed.

Putin is also expected to address the opening of a bilateral conference of governors.

Russia and Japan have yet to sign a formal World War II peace treaty due to their territorial dispute over the South Kuril Islands, former Japanese territory annexed by the Soviet Union after the war.

In an attempt to move forward on the dispute, both sides agreed to introduce a visa-less exchange program for Japanese nationals wanting to travel to the disputed islands.
