Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and Japanese government representative in charge of Japan-Russia relations Chikahito Harada agreed to continue peace treaty talks.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow and Japan have agreed to continue peace treaty talks following a meeting between senior officials on Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"On June 22 in Tokyo, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and Japanese government representative in charge of Japan-Russia relations Chikahito Harada held the third round of Russian-Japanese talks on the peace treaty issue," the ministry said in a statement.

"An agreement was reached to continue dialogue in this format," the statement reads.

Tokyo has been laying claims to Russia's Kuril Islands, which has prevented the countries from signing a peace treaty after WWII.
