Putin rebuffs call by Japan’s Abe to sign World War Two peace treaty
Putin made the comment at an economic forum in Russia’s Far East after Abe called on him to resolve a row between the countries.
Both countries have been clashing over a disputed chain of islands that has prevented the two countries signing a peace treaty.
The Russian leader said he hoped that a peace treaty could be signed in future however and that the two countries could eventually resolve their long-running differences.
Moscow has repeatedly raised concerns about U.S. military systems being deployed on Japanese territory.
