Speaking in front of foreign ambassadors at the Kremlin, Putin said he hopes Prime Minister Abe’s visit will facilitate the widening of Russian-Japanese ties for mutual benefits. He said that holding dialogue with Japan was one of Russia’s foreign policy priorities.

Last week Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that Moscow is ready to continue talks with Tokyo. Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said the two countries agreed to start negotiations on a peace treaty as soon as possible following Japanese Prime Minister Shizo Abe’s visit to Russia.
