Abe declared a “decisive moment” in negotiations with Russia on a peace Treaty
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that in negotiations between Moscow and Tokyo on peace Treaty is a crucial time.
“Now is the crucial moment. President Putin will put the final point in this matter,” said Mr Abe, during his visit to Yamaguchi Prefecture (quoted by Kyodo).
The Prime Minister of Japan also stated that during his visit to Russia, which will be held in late January, he intends to push ahead with negotiations on a peace Treaty.
We will remind, in September at the Eastern economic forum the President of Russia Vladimir Putin has invited Shinzo Abe to sign a peace Treaty. During the November meeting of the leaders of Russia and Japan agreed to accelerate the settlement of the territorial dispute, but concrete actions have been announced.
However, the government of Japan moved to the active promotion in the country solution to the territorial problem on the “model of 1956,” which implies a peace Treaty with Russia after the transfer to the Japanese two, not four Kuril Islands.
