In an interview with Izvestia on September 16, Anton Morozov, a member of the International Affairs Committee of the State Duma, said that in Russia the arrival of a new prime minister in Japan is associated with great hopes.
Thus, he noted that “A change in the political leadership of any country always creates the preconditions for a reset of relations with Russia. We hope that the new prime minister will not only take a course towards concluding a peace treaty, but will also lead our countries to conclude it without any reason for preliminary reasons. ”
Among the differences between Russia and Japan, Anton Morozov sees the sanctions imposed by Tokyo “under pressure from its Western partners” against Russia, and Tokyo’s cooperation with NATO in the Asia-Pacific region, which poses a threat to Russia’s security. However, “All these disagreements can be eliminated taking into account the great prospects of our socio-economic interaction, which has shown its prospects and effectiveness,” concluded Morozov.
