High-ranking Japanese, Russian diplomats hold talks

All national dailies wrote that Deputy Foreign Minister Mori and his Russian counterpart Morgulov met in Tokyo on Monday and exchanged views on security issues of mutual interest, such as Japan’s plan to deploy Aegis Ashore batteries, the possibility of the U.S. deploying intermediate-range ballistic missiles in Asia, and the Russian military’s operations in the vicinity of the Northern Territories. The two officials also reportedly discussed other pending issues, such as “joint economic activities” on the contested islands in preparation for a bilateral summit between Prime Minister Abe and President Putin on the margins of the annual APEC leaders’ meeting in Chile in November.
