Present and Future of Japan-Russia in 2018 (Mr. Shinji Hyodo, Director, Regional Studies Department, The National Institute for Defense Studies)

post date : 2018.11.21

On November 14, a Japan-Russia summit meeting was held in Singapore, with both leaders agreeing to accelerate negotiations on a peace treaty based on the 1956 Joint Declaration by Japan and the USSR. With the two leaders expected to meet again during the G20 Buenos Aires summit at the end of November and plans for Prime Minister Abe to visit Russia early next year, there are hopes for progress on a peace treaty and in negotiations regarding the Northern Territories.


The FPCJ has invited Mr. Shinji Hyodo, director of the Regional Studies Department of the National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS), to speak about the present and future of Japan-Russia relations.
