Senior Russian and Japanese diplomats will meet in Moscow on August 26 for a new round of talks on a post-World War II peace treaty, Japanese Foreign Ministry press secretary confirmed Monday.

 

A Russian Foreign Ministry source told RIA Novosti last week that Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and the Japanese government’s representative for relations with Russia Tikahito Harada planned to meet in the Russian capital on August 26.

“I officially confirm that they will conduct the next round of talks on August 26 on the conclusion of a peace treaty between Japan and Russia,” Yasuhisa Kawamura told RIA Novosti.

Kawamura said the latest round would be conducted on the basis of bilateral talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe last May.
