MOSCOW, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and new Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda discussed bilateral relations in a telephone conversation Tuesday, the Kremlin press service said.

In the conversation initiated by Japan, both leaders expressed their intention of continuing a constructive dialogue at a high level, according to the Kremlin press service.

"The Russian president and the Japanese prime minister called for further development of bilateral relations in trade, economy, investments, scientific, technological and humanitarian sectors on the basis of friendship and good neighborliness," the press service said.

Noda, the former Japanese finance minister, was elected last week as the leader of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan and the new prime minister to succeed Naoto Kan.
