Japan rejected the idea of Putin about a peace Treaty without conditions.

Incidentally, Japan and Russian Federation failed to go ahead and sign a treaty after the end of the World War II.

It is reported by the Chronicle.info with reference to Capital.

Russian President Vladimir Putin turned to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on a conference stage on Wednesday and offered to sign a peace deal to end a decades-old territorial dispute by the end of the year.

At the invitation of the Russian government, 996 children from China's quake-hit area came to "Ocean" for rehabilitation and the experience will be etched in their memories, the Chinese president said while addressing the children and teachers at the center.

Neither side has said what they'll discuss, but Trump's policies on trade and North Korea are topics of interest to both Russian Federation and China.

"Both Abe and Putin say they want a solution to the dispute".

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jingping displayed their cooking skills on the sidelines of an global economic forum.

Seventy-three years after the war concluded, the two countries remain technically at war because of a territorial dispute over four Pacific islands.

The pair earlier in the day praised their countries' increasingly close ties, with Xi saying their "friendship was getting stronger all the time".

During the talks in Vladivostok on Wednesday, Putin and Abe discussed the idea of building a railway bridge from Sakhalin to mainland Russian Federation, which could later be extended to the Kuril Islands and Japan.

Chinese leader Xi Jinping was challenged to show his cooking skills by host Vladimir Putin, when the Russian president invited his guest to try a traditional dish: pancake with caviar chased down with a shot of vodka.

A Japanese foreign ministry spokesman, Takeshi Osuga, said the two leaders "shared their determination to promote bilateral relations and to make progress on all fronts".

Abe smiled at the suggestion.

The islands of Etorofu, Kunashiri, Shikotan and the Habomai islet group were seized by the Soviet Union after Japan surrendered in World War II in August 1945.
