The conclusion of a peace Treaty with Japan will have a positive impact on the economy of the Sakhalin region, which includes the Kuril Islands, said the Governor of the region Oleg Kozhemyako in the fields of the Eastern economic forum.

Earlier the President of Russia Vladimir 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.

«In any case, any peace agreement reflected a positive,» said Kozhemyako, responding to a question about potential economic benefits for the region.

According to the Governor, the conclusion of a peace Treaty is very important for Sakhalin, as it is neighboring with Japan region. «This is an additional impetus to the development and implementation of projects,» he said.

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.
