Putin Says Further Discussion Needed

Putin says further discussion needed

One day after the bilateral summit meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Russian President Vladimir Putin said further discussion is needed over the territorial issue.

Putin said, "Prime Minister Abe told me that Japan is ready to go back to the1956 declaration between the Soviet Union and Japan. But the declaration does not clearly stipulate everything. It only states the basic idea that the Soviet Union was ready to hand over 2 of the islands in the southern part. It does not say on what basis the islands would be handed over. Nor does it say anything about the sovereignty over the islands. Japan had previously rejected implementing this agreement. Now that it is willing to consider it, we need to examine the idea in good faith."
