Yeltsin Hosts Hashimoto

MOSCOW -- Former President Boris Yeltsin held talks Saturday with ex-Japanese Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto, a personal friend.

Their meeting took place one day after coast guards fired at a Japanese fishing boat and seized the vessel.

ORT television showed Yeltsin and his wife, Naina, greeting the Hashimotos with flowers and hugs at their Rus residence near Moscow.
