The signing of a peace Treaty between Russia and Japan before the end of the year will be a good answer to the illegal sanctions policy of the G7 countries, said the head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed at the plenary session «the far East: expanding opportunities» at the Eastern economic forum to conclude a peace Treaty between Russia and Japan before the end of the year, without preconditions.

«The conclusion of a peace Treaty with Japan, in my opinion, is indeed real and not remote possibility. In December 2016, as you remember, following the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin in Tokyo it was decided on the establishment of a special regime for joint economic development of the Kuril Islands. And that was a huge step towards understanding in the multi-year territorial dispute,» said Slutsky reporters.

However, the absence of a peace Treaty between the two countries called the policy «obvious anachronism», since Russia and Japan have not are in a state of war or enmity.

«Our relations are developing, an extensive bilateral contractual basis. At the same time, from a political point of view a peace Treaty will further promote Russian-Japanese cooperation. And if the signing will happen before the end of the year, as proposed by the President of the Russian Federation, it will be a worthy answer to the illegal sanctions policy of the G7 countries», he concluded.
