NAGATO, Japan (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed a range of issues on Thursday including Syria, Ukraine and the disputed islands at the heart of a territorial row between their countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

The two leaders met at a hot spring resort in southwest Japan to seek progress on the feud between Japan and Russia that has blocked a peace treaty formally ending World War Two.
