MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. Moscow regrets that Tokyo allows a distorted interpretation of historical facts when speaking about the problem of the peace treaty with Russia, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement over remarks by a Japanese diplomat on the peace treaty problem.
"(We) paid attention to an interview of a responsible employee of the Japanese Foreign Ministry on the problem of the peace treaty with Russia. In it, the Japanese diplomat said, in particular, that "not all results of World War II had been summed up" between Moscow and Tokyo and that the so-called territorial issue needs to be resolved," the ministry said.
"We express our sincere regret over the fact that the Japanese side is trying to launch a public discussion on the sensitive issue of the bilateral relations allowing arbitrary and distorted interpretation of historical facts at that," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
