 Following is the gist of the Japan-Russia summit meeting:

 

 Northern Territories issue

 

 President Vladimir Putin: The vice ministerial talks on the conclusion of a peace treaty in October were very meaningful.

 

 Putin, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: We will work for a mutually acceptable solution based on the agreement reached at the Japan-Russia summit in April 2013.

 

 Exchange of visits by leaders

 

 Abe: In order to move the bilateral relationship forward, the important thing is for the two leaders to talk.

 

 Abe, Putin: We will make preparations for a visit by Mr. Putin to Japan at the most appropriate time.

 

 Putin: It would be nice to meet with (the Prime Minister) in a regional city.

 

 UN Security Council

 

 Putin: Since Japan will become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council (UNSC) in 2016, we will also be able to cooperate in the UNSC.

 

 Abe: We would like to communicate closely with Russia in the UNSC. It is good that the two countries are steadily promoting dialogue and exchanges in broad-ranging areas, including in the economic, security, and cultural fields.
