Prime Minister Kan said that he would energetically address Japan’s ties with Russia and would "push the wheels of the cart forward", both in the field of politics and economics, so as to eventually conclude a peace treaty and settle the issue of the northern territories, the biggest problem in Japanese-Russian relations.
