Japan favors signing peace treaty with Russia after resolving islands issue

Worth mention here Xi is leading a delegation of near 1,000 Chinese business people and officials to the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia's Far East city of Vladivostok. The shared agenda between China and Russian Federation this week goes beyond economics and diplomacy.

China this month is sending 3,200 troops and about 900 weapons units to take part in the biggest Russian military exercises since the Cold War.

Xi is travelling to Vladivostok, in the Russian Far East, on Tuesday and Wednesday for an economic conference where he's expected to meet with Putin, while China joins vast Russian war games for the first time. "The Russian and Chinese sides confirmed their interest in using national currencies more actively in reciprocal payments", Putin told journalists.

The two leaders have attempted to cultivate a special relationship in recent years, meeting often and making demonstrative public displays of warmth.

"Within the framework of the forum 100 business events were held", Trutnev said, noting that more than 6,000 delegates and 1,300 media representatives participated in the event.

Starting in April 2018, the USA imposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from China, as well as Canada and countries in the European Union.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appeared open to a treaty, saying it was "not normal" that one still hasn't been signed after seven decades.

"(China) is the ideal instrument to project Russia as a resurgent global power, so essentially the Russia narrative is that China, Russia and to a lesser extent India, are part of this new dynamic world order", he said. They're scheduled every four years and some previous versions have modeled scenarios similar to a Russia-China conflict.

The South Korean PM also said that President Moon proposed to try to increase the bilateral trade volume by 50 percent by 2020, which marks the 30th year anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Placing their historic rivalry on the back burner, the historic rivals projected a united front amid pressure from Washington, which is fighting a trade war with China and leveling new sanctions on Russian Federation.
