Work on the conclusion of a peace Treaty between Russia and Japan was not stopped, it is ongoing, reported on Wednesday, Deputy foreign Minister Igor Morgulov

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 talks we have had with the Japanese on a regular basis, he does not stop. So, of course, will continue, including on the basis of spoken from the lips of the President proposals,» Morgulov told reporters at the WEF.

«It (the proposal) will create the atmosphere required for solving complex problems in our relations, in this logic,» — said Deputy foreign Minister of the Russian Federation.

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.
