Russian President Vladimir Putin at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that a decision on a peace treaty should be acceptable to the peoples of the two countries.
At the same time, the president added that priority attention was paid to the prospects for expanding trade and investment ties.
As Streltsov noted, the emphasis in the negotiations was on the economy, since no breakthrough or mutually acceptable solution was reached on the issue of a peace treaty.
“The parties, understanding this, focused on areas that would make the visit more fruitful. The plan is to move the economy first, and then conclude a peace treaty — it is still in effect, ”Streltsov explained.
According to him, Russian-Japanese relations have great potential in the economic field.
“We have something to offer the Japanese market, to increase the supply of Russian energy, food. Russia is interested in that, and there are business circles in Japan that are enthusiastic about developing relations with Russia, ”the expert concluded.
