Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he will visit Russia in the shortest possible time to promote a peace Treaty. This is reported by the Rambler/news citing TASS.
Abe noted that the improvement of relations with Russia is very important “to maintain security in northeast Asia”. “However, 70 years after the end of the Second world war between the two countries signed a peace Treaty. This is an abnormal situation,” – said the Prime Minister.
He recalled that during the recent visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Japan, the parties expressed their “sincere desire to resolve the problem.”
Putin held talks with Abe in December last year. Politicians, in particular, have agreed on a joint business activity in the Kuril Islands, which would relate to fisheries, medicine, tourism and ecology.
