n TOKYO -- Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov arrived in Japan on Tuesday for a four-day visit to follow up progress made at a summit in Siberia, Foreign Ministry officials said.

The two are expected to start working toward the goal set by Yeltsin and Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk in early November.
