BUENOS AIRES, November 22. /TASS/. The issue of the peace treaty with Russia cannot be resolved without trusting relationship with President Vladimir Putin, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Tuesday during his official visit to Argentina.
"Without trusting relationship with president Putin, it is impossible to resolve this issue. I would want to promote (talks) stably, step by step," Abe said adding that it is important to progress in Moscow-Tokyo consultations on the peace treaty with benefits for both sides.
On Saturday, Putin and Abe held a meeting at the APEC summit in Peru. After the meeting, the Japanese prime minister admitted that it is not that easy to resolve the problem of a peace treaty between the two countries. Talking to journalists, he said "a path is opening up" toward the settlement of the issue. Putin said that talks on signing a peace treaty serve as evidence of progress in the relations between the two countries.
