The initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s signing of a peace Treaty with Japan was born during his speech at the Eastern economic forum, said the press Secretary of the head of state, Dmitry Peskov.

Earlier Putin at the plenary session «the far East: expanding opportunities» at the Eastern economic forum has proposed to conclude a peace Treaty between Russia and Japan before the end of the year, without preconditions. In addition, the President added that the need to create an environment for comfortable solving all other problems.

«This is a new initiative of Putin, speaking at a plenary meeting, the President noted that this idea, which was born right at the time of this meeting, during the speech, given the theses that were outlined by the Prime Minister (of Japan Shinzo) Abe,» — said Peskov.

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. The return of the Islands Tokyo made it a condition of signing a peace Treaty with Russia, which after the Second world war and was not signed. The position of Moscow consists that southern Kuriles became part of the Soviet Union at the end of the Second world war and the Russian sovereignty over them with appropriate international legal design, not subject to doubt.
