Japan Gives Medicine

VLADIVOSTOK, Far East -- Japan has given $900,000 worth of medicine and medical equipment to the Far East, part of a $10 million aid package, a news report said Monday.

Japan agreed to provide the assistance when Prime Minister Keizo Obuchi visited Russia last November.

Japan has been providing humanitarian assistance to Russia for several years, and much of it has gone to the country's east coast.
