"Today we will hear out the reports from experts in three areas on the further advancement of the work plans. Energy is the fulcrum of the Japanese-Russian relations. I would like to hold a constructive dialogue with Novak on the progress of each project in order to further promote cooperation," Seko said at the Russian-Japanese Energy Council.
Russia and Japan are currently cooperating on the construction of the so called Russian-Japan energy bridge, a part of the Asian energy super ring project aimed at unifying power grids in Russia, Japan, South Korea, China and Mongolia.
The agreements were reached as a result of the historic visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Japan.
