   Vladivostok, Russia, Sept. 5 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe proposed Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday that they fulfill a "historic mission" of concluding a World War II peace treaty by resolving their countries' territorial dispute.

   "We have a historic mission. We shouldn't keep people waiting any longer," Abe stressed. "Let's make it through the finish line together."
   "Let's unlock the infinite potential of both countries' peoples by concluding a peace treaty. Let's make history together," he continued.
   Asked by the session's moderator after Abe's speech, Putin said he wants to resolve the pending issues, too. The two countries are moving toward the conclusion of a peace treaty, he added.
