VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has called for closing the chapter on the territorial dispute with Russia as well as solving the issue of a peace treaty and starting a new era of relations between the two countries.
"Vladimir, we’re the people of one generation. Let’s display courage and assume responsibility, overcome difficulties and pass peace to future generations where Russia and Japan will unlock their huge potential. Let’s close the chapter on the abnormal situation lasting for over 70 years already and together start a new era of Russian-Japanese relations that will last for another 70 years," Abe said at the Eastern Economic Forum on Saturday.
The relations between Russia and Japan are complementing rather than competitive.
"The relations between our economies are not competitive, they ideally complement each other. I suggest that we together should think about the future in order to trigger demand and supply," he said.
Shinzo Abe emphasized also suggesting that annual bilateral meetings should be held in Vladivostok.
