Implementation of the declaration between the USSR and Japan on a peace treaty should begin from signing of the agreement, and details should be agreed according to the changed conditions, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after a meeting with Japan's Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida on Saturday.
Axar.az reports, Lavrov said: "President Putin has confirmed many times, Russia adheres to this document," he said. "Clearly, the conditions which were in the world and between our countries 60 years ago were different from the positions Russia and Japan have now in the international system."
"If it comes to implementation of the 1956 declaration, we shall have to discuss many details regarding how it should be implemented," he continued. "But the first step regarding the 1956 declaration between Japan and the USSR should be signing of a peace treaty."
