Japan claims the four southern Islands of the Kuril ridge – Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai, referring to the Treatise on trade and borders of 1855. Moscow insists that the South Kuril Islands became part of the Soviet Union at the end of the Second world war.
According to the Soviet-Japanese Declaration of 1956, the USSR agreed to deliver to the Japanese side Shikotan and Habomai after a peace Treaty, which is still there.
In September last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin has invited Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to conclude a peace Treaty “without any preconditions”. Abe has called this proposal unacceptable. January 14, Putin and Abe held talks in Moscow. A new meeting is scheduled for January 22.
