Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has dropped plans to host Russian President Vladimir Putin in Japan this year due to friction after Tokyo imposed sanctions on Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.

The two countries had agreed on the Russian leader's visit "this autumn" but Washington had asked Tokyo to postpone it.

Tokyo also sees it as important to keep in step with the West as it has joined the US and Europe in putting pressure on Russia with sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, Kyodo said.

Japan is now seeking to arrange for Putin to visit next spring or later, depending on the state of ties between Russia and the United States which are bitterly at odds over the crisis.
