Russia's Putin tells Japan's Abe - 'Let's sign peace deal this year'

World A- A A+
Russian President Vladimir Putin, sitting on a stage alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, proposed on Wednesday that the two men sign a peace treaty by the end of this year.
 
The two countries are in dispute over a chain of Pacific islands and as a result have still not formally ended their World War Two hostilities.
 
“An idea has just come into my head,” Putin said, turning toward Abe, during a question and answer session at an economic forum in the Russian city of Vladivostok.
 
“Let’s conclude a peace treaty before the end of this year, without any pre-conditions.”
 
Abe, sitting alongside Putin, did not give his response.
