The Russian Foreign Ministry unveiled Tuesday a plan to build a hospital symbolizing Japan-Russia friendship in Moscow as the two countries seek to deepen cooperation in the medical field.


Under the roughly 13 billion yen ($121 million) project, construction of the new facility, which will utilize Japan’s advanced medical technology, is expected to be completed between 2020 and 2021.


The hospital will be located in an area adjacent to an existing hospital run by a Russian public corporation.


Officials from Japanese medical equipment manufacturers and other companies participated in an event at the Russian Embassy in Tokyo at which the Russian side provided an overview of the project to potential investors.


Japan and Russia have agreed to expand cooperation in eight areas including healthcare, based on a plan proposed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2016.
