TOKYO, January 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Japan and Russia have continued talks for a future peace treaty, which the two countries have failed to clinch since the end of WWII, in an atmosphere of mutual trust, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told the Japanese Parliament in his keynote speech on Friday.
“We are maintaining the bilateral dialogue in an atmosphere of mutual trust, discussing the issues of security and economic cooperation and are determined to continue peace treaty talks,” Abe said.
The Prime Minister earlier declared plans to have as many high-level meetings with the Russian authorities this year as possible. Abe is expected to revisit Russia in February for the Olympic opening ceremony in Sochi. The Japanese Foreign Ministry earlier said the trip was now being coordinated.
