Sergei Lavrov and Issei Nomura discussed Friday preparations for President Vladimir Putin's November 20-21 visit to Japan
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Japan's ambassador in Moscow, Issei Nomura, discussed Friday preparations for President Vladimir Putin's November 20-21 visit to Japan, the ministry said. The ministry said both sides had agreed that the substance of the summit had to be finalized to ensure that it gave "a new impetus to the development of relations in all areas and became a landmark on the way toward advancing Russia and Japan to real partnership." Relations between the two countries have been strained in recent years due to dispute over the Kuril Islands off Russia's far-eastern coast. Japan claims sovereignty over four isles that became part of the Soviet Union after World War II. The issue remains unresolved and has prevented the signing of a peace treaty to end the war formally. During the meeting, Lavrov reiterated his intention to meet his Japanese counterpart, Taro Aso, at a meeting of foreign and trade ministers from member countries of the Asian Pacific and Economic Cooperation forum in South Korea next week.
