Vladimir Putin and Shinzo Abe
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that during the year in relations between Russia and Japan managed to do what worked the last 70 years, reports TASS.
The head of the Japanese government, speaking at the plenary session of the Eastern economic forum, noted that “if we continue these steps for another year and then another year”, ahead you will see the “bright future of Russo-Japanese relations, to reveal the existing potential in full”.
“That is why we must put an end to such an abnormal situation, when we have still no peace Treaty,” he said, suggesting Russian leader Vladimir Putin “together to fulfill this obligation”.
At the end of his speech, Abe called for “open a new era of Russian-Japanese relations.”
WEF 2017 is held in Vladivostok from 6 to 7 September. The forum was attended by Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, South Korean President moon Jae-In and President of Mongolia Khaltmagiin Battulga.
Following the end of world war II between Moscow and Tokyo never signed a peace Treaty. The main obstacle to the signing of the document is the unresolved dispute over the southern Kuril Islands, namely the largest Islands: Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and the Habomai group.
