TOKYO, October 3. /TASS/. The Japanese government is ready for talks with Russia, though Japan takes action in coordination with the other G7 countries over the situation in Ukraine, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said, adding that Japan sought to contribute to peaceful settlement in Ukraine.
Japanese-Russian dialogue is also aimed at settling the peace treaty problem. It is unnatural that the two countries have no peace treaty, the premier noted.
The prime minister said that a bilateral meeting between Japanese and Russian leaders could be held during the APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum) summit in Beijing in November. The Japanese prime minister, when speaking in the parliament last Monday, also called for a dialogue with Russia over Ukraine.
Days after Japan imposed additional sanctions on Russia, Abe said Tokyo would work with the international community to stabilize the situation in Ukraine and urge Moscow to be a responsible state through dialogue.
