Japan would like to arrange a visit by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Russia in September, its chief government spokesman said on Monday.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said that leaders from Japan and Russia would need to talk directly because there were “issues between the two nations.”

On Friday, Japan’s foreign ministry called a visit by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to an island claimed by both Japan and Russia “extremely regrettable”, urging Moscow to take constructive steps to advance ties.
