The President of Russia Vladimir Putin will meet May 6 with the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, who will be visiting Russia at Vladimir Putin’s invitation, according to the Kremlin.
The two leaders will meet next Friday in Sochi, the city where the 2014 Winter Olympics were held.
According to the Kremlin, the meeting of the two leaders will focus on the current situation and prospects for developing bilateral relations in trade, the economy and humanitarian sphere will be subjects of discussion at the upcoming talks.
The leaders of Russia and Japan are also to hold an in-depth exchange of opinions on topical international issues, according to the Kremlin.
It is expected that the leaders could address the subject of the Northern Territories/ Kurils, which has kept the two countries from signing a peace treaty formally ending their World War II hostilities, noted the PanArmenian Net agency.
