Russia unsure if Japan-U.S. treaty revision will affect islands dispute

OSAKA (Reuters) - Russia will need to wait for the United States and Japan to revise their security treaty before deciding how it is going to affect Moscow-Tokyo talks on disputed islands, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said on Saturday.

“These questions are of bilateral U.S.-Japan matters,” Morgulov said in Osaka, adding that the potential revision could in the end have some impact on the Russia-Japan peace treaty, which has been stalled for decades by territorial disputes. “Let’s wait for the possible U.S.-Japan military agreement revision and then give it assessments.”
