Shinzo Abe: Russia and Japan Need a Peace Treaty

Vladimir Putin was supposed to visit Japan in the autumn of 2014, but due to the crisis in Ukraine and the severe complication of the international situation, the visit did not take place.

However, this year, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed hope that the situation could be rectified. Moreover, the time is just right: this year marks the 70th anniversary of the victory in World War II, and a peace treaty has not yet been signed between Russia and Japan - he said this in his keynote speech at the opening of the parliamentary session.

“To date, the President of the Russian Federation (Vladimir) Putin and I have held 10 meetings. We would like to make the visit of the President (RF) at a suitable time for this this year ", - transfers his words TASS.

The movement toward cooperation is also observed in the Russian-Japanese business environment. So, the President of "Business Russia" Alexey Repik, the head of the Russian business mission in Japan, the other day said that the focus of Russian-Japanese economic cooperation is shifting from the field of trade towards long-term investment projects.

The President of "Business Russia" noted that the overall thrust of the Japanese business vision is not aimed at "tearing off the fruits that hang low", but on stable long-term investment projects -

"The sun of Russian-Japanese business only goes back. I am sure that we will be able to see the results of the last years in two or three or four years ", - Repik underlined.
