PM Abe to visit Russia early next year

NHK reported online that PM Abe said during his speech today in Tokyo that the agreement between Japan and Russia to begin talks on joint economic activities in the Northern Territories is “an important step toward concluding a peace treaty,” and that he is hoping to visit Russia early next year to “further accelerate the momentum toward rapprochement” between the two nations. On joint economic activities, the premier reportedly said: “If realized, Japanese people engaged in such economic activities will be able to visit the islands many times and live there. If we deepen our mutual understanding and trust, we can make the four islands islands of co-existence, not islands of conflict.”
