TOKYO, January 28 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that progress in settling problems of a Peace Treaty between Russia and Japan is possible only under conditions of giving up preliminary terms and unilateral historical precedents.
“We favour conducting the dialogue on the grounds of available documents and principles of legality and justice,” he said by the results of a meeting with Japanese counterpart Koichiro Gamba. “The available documents and principles are interpreted for the time being by the sides differently.”
“We are convinced that progress is possible only when the sides give up preliminary conditions and unilateral historical precedents,” the minister emphasized.
