Japanese, Russian diplomats exchange opinions in Tokyo

Asahi wrote that Deputy Foreign Minister Mori held talks with his Russian counterpart Morgulov in Tokyo on Wednesday, speculating that the officials probably discussed the proposed “joint economic activities” initiative in the Northern Territories ahead of a foreign ministerial meeting to be convened here on Friday.


In a related development, NHK reported this morning that the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement yesterday ahead of the Japan-Russia 2+2 meeting today saying that the meeting will discuss confidence building in security and bilateral cooperation in responding to new threats and that Russia intends to express its opinion on the U.S.’s “expanding missile defense in the Asia-Pacific region,” indicating that it will convey its concern about the Aegis Ashore systems that Japan is planning to procure from the U.S.
