Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that both he and Russian President Vladimir Putin are “determined that we will sign a peace agreement” over the Kuril Islands. He was speaking at a joint press conference on the sidelines of East Economic Forum in Vladivostok on Thursday.
“We discussed opportunities to establish joint agricultural activity in the Southern Kuril Islands,” Putin said, adding... Еще “the Foreign Ministries of our two countries chose a range of interesting projects, which should be implemented first. They include cooperation in aquaculture, wind energy, creating greenhouses, recycling and the development of package holidays.”
Both Abe and Putin condemned North Korea’s latest nuclear test. “If North Korea continues to follow this path, it will not have a bright future. We need to deliver this thought to North Korea and force it to change its politics. Japan and Russia reached the same opinion that we will cooperate closely [in this area], and in the UN Security Council as well,” Abe said.
Putin and Abe plan to meet again on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum in Vietnam in November. Abe also accepted Putin’s invite to attend the Saint Petersburg Economic Forum at the end of May 2018.
