US President Barack Obama during a telephone conversation asked the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe not to go to Russia, although the visit was planned for the beginning of May this year, Japanese media write.

 

The conversation took place on February 9th. “Now is not the time,’’ RBK quotes the US president with reference to Reuters, which, in turn, cites the Kyodo News. However, the opinion of the Japanese prime minister did not coincide with the point of view of Obama, and the conversation ended with no result.
