The World

October 14, 1985

Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone has asked the Soviet Union to resume talks on a World War II peace treaty. Tokyo newspapers said that Japan's ambassador to the Soviet Union, Yasue Katori, met with Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze and delivered a letter from Nakasone to Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev, proposing the resumption of talks on a peace treaty. A major thorn in their relations has been a territorial dispute over four northern islands seized by the Soviet Union from Japan in 1945.
