. The acting Governor of Primorye Andrey Tarasenko considers that the peace Treaty between Russia and Japan would enable business to conduct long-term projects and attract investment, he told this in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Held at the Eastern economic forum in Vladivostok a plenary session with the participation of Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a proposal to conclude a peace Treaty before the end of this year, without preconditions.

«The peace Treaty will give the opportunity to conduct long-term projects business will attract investment. Also this perspective gives the opportunity of visa-free visits», — said Tarasenko.

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.
