Tokyo sees no obstacles for the visit of the State Duma speaker to Japan

Tokyo does not see any obstacles for the visit of State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin to Japan in early June, general secretary of the government Yoshihide Suga said at a press conference in Tokyo.

In late April, the Japanese government announced a ban on issuing 23 visas to Russian officials in connection with the situation in Ukraine. The list of names is not made public. In March, Japan suspended negotiations with the Russian Federation on easing the visa regime and starting negotiations on two other agreements, which became the softest of the sanctions adopted by the G7 countries.

“We know that the Chairman of the State Duma Naryshkin expressed a desire to attend the opening ceremony of the Festival of Russian Culture in Japan…. He is not included in the list of persons who (in accordance with visa sanctions) are prohibited from entering Japan, so there is no contradiction here, ”Suga said.

He noted that since the program of the State Duma Speaker's stay in Japan has not been determined, the issue of his meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other Japanese politicians has not yet been decided.
