Russian President Vladimir Putin has proposed signing a World War II peace treaty with Japan by the end of the year without preconditions.

During a session of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russian President said we have been trying to solve the territorial dispute for 70 years.

The dispute between Russia and Japan centres on four islands in the strategically-located Kuril chain which the Soviet Union occupied at the end of war in 1945 but are claimed by Japan.
