Russia's Vladimir Putin late again to summit with Shinzo Abe

Japan's Abe says talks with Putin moving towards peace treaty

The Eastern Economic Forum is an worldwide forum held each year since 2015 to encourage foreign investment in the Russian Far East. In 1956, Japan and the Soviet Union agreed to end "the state of war" and restore diplomatic relations.

The top government spokesman also said Japan will not change its position of seeking to resolve the issue of the islands' sovereignty, before concluding the peace treaty with Russian Federation.

"We've been trying to solve the territorial dispute for 70 years".

Not only were such global a-listers as Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, a regular attendee, welcomed by the forum's host Russian President Vladimir Putin, but over US$42 billion dollars worth of deals were reportedly done on the sidelines.

A Japanese government spokesman said the country's stance had not changed.

Prime Minister Lee thanked President Putin for Russia's support towards establishing permanent peace and denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, and said that the South Korean government was doing its best to implement what was agreed in June, between Presidents Moon Jae-in and Putin, including the "nine bridges" of cooperation between South Korea and Russian Federation.

Analysts say that presence of the two leaders who have arrived from Tokyo and Seoul demonstrates the interest of key countries of the Asia-Pacific in realising Mr. Putin's ambitious regional plan, which has China and other countries, including India, as possible partners.

Missy Elliott and her 'funky white sister' rapped together and we're crying
Last month Mary Halsey of Rhode Island posted a Facebook video of herself doing a karaoke version of Missy Elliott's " Work It ". On The Ellen Show this week, Ellen DeGeneres brought together Halsey and the iconic rapper for a surprise meeting.

On Monday, Putin had seemed to pour cold water on suggestions that the dispute could be solved soon. "Putin does not expect anything", Kunadze told the Echo of Moscow radio station.

He suggested Abe would never accept a deal that would be political suicide.

Alexander Gabuev, head of the Russian Federation in the Asia Pacific Program at the Carnegie Moscow Center, suggested Putin's proposal was a sign of frustration at a dearth of Japanese investment.

Upon returning to power in 2012, Abe took a firm position on Japan's claims to the disputed island chain, aggravating tensions with Beijing.

In Tokyo, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a press conference that the Russian leader did not make any such proposal during the bilateral meeting with Abe.

Lying near the Japanese island of Hokkaido, the territory was taken over by Red Army troops in the final days of World War II.

This is not Putin and Xi's first foray into batter-based cooking.
