The Japanese Embassy did not confirm the information about the cancellation of the visit of the Russian President

The Japanese government has not yet made any decisions regarding the visit of the Russian president to Tokyo. This was announced by ITAR-TASS news agency by the adviser to the Japanese embassy in Moscow, Kotaro Otsuki.

So he commented on reports that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, at the request of the United States, withdrew the invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit Tokyo this fall. In particular, the Japanese news agency Kyodo, citing anonymous government sources, reported that Japan could postpone Putin's visit to next spring or later and that the next meeting of the two leaders could take place at the APEC summit in November. "Our goal now is not Putin's visit to Japan, but a summit on the occasion of the APEC forum," an anonymous source told Kyodo.

For his part, Kotaro Otsuki recalled that former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori had recently visited Moscow, and at a meeting with Vladimir Putin, the parties "agreed on the importance of maintaining contacts at the highest level." At the same time, "the meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries, unfortunately, will not take place," the minister-adviser noted.
