Peskov: reports on Lavrov resignation are speculations

Kono Lavrov agree to hold security talks

Both countries have long-remained at odds over the sovereignty of Russia-controlled islands north of Japan's Hokkaido, but in a press briefing following the talks on Wednesday, Lavrov took aim at Japan's plans to install a new US -made land-based missile defense system. They are to be stationed at test sites of Japan's self-defense force in the northern prefecture Akita and southeastern prefecture Yamaguchi by 2023 or earlier.

Similar to the criticism over the Aegis missile defense system by Russian Federation, the deployment of the THAAD by South Korea was equally condemned by the country, as well as Beijing.

Japan's increased defense spending and specifically the Lockheed Martin Corp. -developed system's introduction, alongside the U.S military's pivot to Asia, has irked Russian Federation and other global powers concerned about regional peace and stability. But at Putin's request, he continued working until the presidential election, which took place on March 18, 2018, and Putin was elected for another six-year term. According to Russian Federation, both these systems are nothing but an expansion of the United States control and missile system.

The Japanese government maintains the islands are an inherent part of Japan's territory.

The 2 also agreed to arrange other bilateral talks over the next 12 months, including a meeting of Japanese and Russian officials who represent their countries over the long-suspended 6-party talks on North Korea's nuclear program.

What is more, the sources even named "an honorary position" at the Security Council of Russian Federation as a possible new job for Lavrov.
