    Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that China and Russia have reached a very high degree of trust and cooperation.

    HANGZHOU (Sputnik) – Russia and China share a high level of trust and cooperation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the end of the G20 summit in Hangzhou on Monday.

    “China and Russia have reached a very high degree of trust and cooperation,” Putin told reporters.

    Answering a question on Russia’s Kuril islands disputed by Japan, Putin used the example of Russian-Chinese trust in settling their territorial issues.

    Japan and Russia have never signed a permanent peace treaty after World War II due to a disagreement over four islands, which Russia calls the Southern Kurils and Japan the Northern Territories. The disputed islands, located in the Sea of Okhotsk, were claimed by Soviet forces at the end of the war.
