Putin arrives in Tokyo from Nagato to hold second round of talks with Japanese PM

Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived to Tokyo. He will hold the second round of negotiations with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe here and visit the Russian-Japanese business forum and the Kodokan Judo Institute.

Putin came to the capital from the small town of Nagato in the Yamaguchi prefecture - Abe's home constituency. The two leaders held talks there on Thursday, which will continue today with participation of the delegations of the two countries.

The extended meeting will be held in the format of a working breakfast. Representatives of Russian and Japanese business will also take part in it. After that, joint documents will be signed in the presence of Putin and Abe. Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said earlier that 10 inter-state agreements are expected to be signed after talks, as well as 12-15 important commercial agreements.
