The Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he hoped to discuss the subject of the peace Treaty.

«I look forward to the discussion of a peace Treaty,» said Abe.

Moscow and Tokyo many decades are in talks with the aim of developing a peace Treaty at the end of the Second world war. The main obstacle to this remains the issue of belonging of the South Kuril Islands: Japan claims the southern Kurile Islands of Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup and Habomai, referring to bilateral Treatise on trade and borders of 1855. 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.
