He said Japan-Russia relations should be based on the national interests of both countries.

Asked about the South Kurils issue, Abe reiterated the position of the Japanese government, saying Japan would exert every effort to settle the issue of the four northern islands’ ownership and concluding a peace treaty with Russia on that basis.
