Former Japanese PM Yoshiro Mori visits Russia to mend bilateral relations strained after the territorial dispute over a series of islands north of Japan's Hokkaido island that were seized by Russia at the end of World War II.

The veteran politician, who reportedly enjoys a good personal relationship with the Russian leader, is expected to hand Putin a letter from the Japanese PM, Shinzo Abe, during a session of informal talks.
