Putin noted that much has been done recently to develop dialogue between states thanks to Sugi's predecessor, Shinzo Abe.
On September 16, the entire Japanese government resigned along with the former prime minister. Abe announced his intention to leave office at the end of August.
As chernayakobra.ru previously wrote, the new Prime Minister Suga is not sophisticated in foreign policy - all his life he has been dealing with the internal problems of Japan. But in relations with Russia, he will have to tackle even more complex tasks than his predecessor.
