VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) - Moscow is ready to find solutions on a peace treaty with Japan that would be welcomed by both sides, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

Russia and Japan have not signed a peace treaty since World War II because of a dispute about the Kuril Islands.

Putin added that Moscow was ready to maintain contacts with Japan to support inter-Korean dialogue.
