The Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe said Monday that Tokyo will be able to resolve the territorial dispute with Russia.

On Monday, Abe said he has already held the 14 th meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. According to him, after the decision of the territorial dispute the country will finally be able to sign a peace Treaty at the end of the Second world war, reports TASS.

After that, according to him, Moscow and Tokyo will strengthen cooperation in energy, economy and other areas.

Last week Japanese media reported that Japan is ready to take two of the Kuril Islands: Habomai, and Shikotan, and the negotiations on the Iturup and Kunashir to continue after the signing of the peace Treaty.

Later in Tokyo denied the allegation, stressing that still insist on the return of all four Islands. Earlier, Japanese media reported that Tokyo is allegedly ready to allow the Russians living in the Kuril Islands, to remain on the Islands (later this information is also denied).

In turn, Vladimir Putin in early September said that Russia is not going to trade their territories.
