Russian President Vladimir Putin met with visiting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. But the two sides didn’t sign any documents, nor hold a joint press conference after Friday’s meeting. According to the Japanese Foreign Ministry, Abe hailed a potential breakthrough in decades-long territorial dispute with Russia. The dispute over a set of islands, known as the Kuriles in Russia and as the Northern Territories in Japan, have prevented them from ever signing a peace treaty to formally end World War Two hostilities. Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the two sides are expected to hold consultations over a peace treaty at deputy foreign ministers level in June.
