The issue of concluding a peace Treaty between Russia and Japan should be solved in the current generation, said Tuesday the head of the house of councilors of Japan’s Parliament, Tuiti date.

«Between Japan and Russia today, after more than 70 years after the war, there remains an abnormal situation — the absence between our countries peace Treaty. It’s very unfortunate,» said date, speaking in the Federation Council of the Russian Federation.

«We are obliged both sides to make every effort to solve difficult problems existing between Japan and Russia to conclude a peace Treaty and give even greater impetus to the potential of bilateral relations,» he added.

According to date, the policies of the two countries «should try to solve this problem in our lifetime, not to impose her decision on the shoulders of future generations.»

Relations between Russia and Japan for many years overshadows the absence of a peace Treaty. Japan claims the Islands of Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup and Habomai, referring to bilateral Treatise on trade and borders of 1855. In 1956 the USSR and Japan signed a Joint Declaration in which Moscow has agreed to consider the possibility of transfer of Japan of the Habomai and Shikotan after the conclusion of a peace Treaty, and the fate of Kunashir and Iturup are not affected. The USSR hoped that the Joint Declaration will put an end to the dispute, Japan believed the document only part of the solution, not abandoning claims to all the Islands.

Later the negotiations failed, the peace Treaty after the Second world war and was not signed. Moscow’s position is that the Islands became part of the Soviet Union at the end of the Second world war and the Russian sovereignty over them cannot be questioned.
