Japanese and Russian foreign ministers discussed bilateral relations and regional issues during a telephone call on Thursday.

Hayashi Yoshimasa said he attaches "great importance" to Japan-Russia relations and intended to exchange views with Sergey Lavrov for "developing overall bilateral relations in a mutually beneficial manner in a broad range of fields, such as politics, economy, and culture, including the issue of concluding a peace treaty," Japan's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
