Japan recalled the conditions for the conclusion of a peace Treaty
Japan has not yet commented on the proposal of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin on the conclusion of a peace Treaty between the States until the end of the year. The chief Secretary of the Japanese government Yoshihide Suga has said that while it would not comment on the proposal of the Russian leader.
While Suga recalled Tokyo’s position, which is that the question of the so-called Northern territories (four Kuril Islands) must be resolved prior to the signing of any peace agreement, reports Reuters.
Press Secretary of the Kremlin Dmitry Peskov also said that Putin has not yet received a response from the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe on his offer to sign a peace Treaty before the end of this year “without any preconditions”.
“While not (response. — Ed.). The President continues working arrangements” — quoted Peskov TASS.
His proposal to Vladimir Putin announced, speaking earlier on Wednesday, September 12, at the Eastern economic forum (WEF) in Vladivostok, reminiscent of the NSN.
Tokyo and Moscow have still not signed a peace Treaty at the end of the Second world war. The obstacle to this was the question of the ownership of the Islands of Iturup, Kunashir and the lesser Kuril ridge, which were incorporated into the USSR after the war. The Russian foreign Ministry has repeatedly stated that the Russian sovereignty over them, which has the appropriate international legal formalization, can not be questioned.
