Лавров отметил совпадение позиций с Токио по мирному договору

Russia and Japan have a match on issues concerning the peace Treaty issue, said Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“There is,” said he, answering the question of whether there are any areas of dialogue on a peace Treaty, in which the positions of Russia and Japan coincide.

“The most important coincidence is clearly expressed political will of our leaders to find mutually acceptable solutions that would ensure the interests of Russia and Japan, and would be accepted by the public in both countries”, — said Lavrov after talks with foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.

According to the head of the Russian foreign Ministry, Russia is interested in solving this problem.

“It is not easy, requires a patient and painstaking, constant work. Of course, this is not conducive to the emotional escalation of the topic in the media or in a confrontational manner, or in line with the inflated expectations of immediate progress,” said Lavrov.
