The leaders of Japan and Russia pledged to press on toward a peace treaty despite failing to resolve a territorial dispute that has blocked a pact for more than five decades. Russian President Vladimir V. Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori ended two days of talks in Tokyo without progress over claims to four islands off northern Japan that Russia seized at the end of World War II. The islands are known as the Kurils in Russia and the Northern Territories in Japan.

Russia and Japan on Monday ordered their diplomats to come up with a proposed peace treaty and territorial settlement in time for Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin's visit to Tokyo this autumn, Japanese officials said. That common resolve, which could lead to the removal of the last stubborn barrier to normal relations between the countries--still technically at war--was reached at talks here between Yeltsin and visiting Japanese Foreign Minister Michio Watanabe.
