Japan objected to Lavrov: "The Kuriles are our land"


Japan believes that its sovereignty extends to the entire southern part of the Kuril ridge, and considers all four islands to be negotiated with Russia. This was stated by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, thus answering the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergei Lavrov to his words about the Russian ownership of these territories.


The Northern Territories are the islands to which our sovereignty extends. In addition, the subject of negotiations with Russia on a peace treaty is to determine the ownership of all four northern islands.

- stressed the head of the Japanese government.

Suga noted that Japanese jurisdiction over all four Kuril Islands is a consistent cabinet stance. He also believes that Japan needs to continue to carry out joint activities with Russia economic activities in the disputed island territories, which should not infringe on the legal positions of Tokyo and Moscow.

Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called on the Japanese side to recognize the ownership of the South Kuriles by Russia. Lavrov recalled that the 1956 declaration indicates the need for Japan to recognize the results of World War II, as well as Russian sovereignty over all territories, including the islands.

Earlier, Yoshihide Suga expressed the opinion that the solution to the Kuril "territorial problem" should not be a burden on future generations, and this issue must be finally settled now. The politician plans to continue in this regard the course of his predecessor as head of the Japanese government, Shinzo Abe.

Meanwhile, in the rules for drawing green cards for the Diversity Visa program, which are published on the resource of the United States Department of State, it is said that those born on the islands of Iturup, Shikotan, Kunashir and Habomai belong to Japan. Those who were born in the southern part of Sakhalin belong to Russia.

    I don’t understand request Why do we need a peace treaty with Japan ??? That they are constantly running around with him like a chicken and an egg, as if someone needs him. We absolutely do not need it, how long we lived without it and we will still live, only spend ink on signing lol As for Japan, that she considers the islands her own, so even if she believes there are no barriers for patriots lol

    It was necessary to crush Japan in 1945. The same must be done today with Transnistria and Donbass!

    After such statements, what kind of economic cooperation with Japan can there be? Fix their brains with sanctions! And Putin and Lavrov believe that we should not be like them.

      Why didn't Khrushchev right away? Shy? Did Brezhnev forget, and the others simply did not have time on the way to the gun carriage? smile

          Was it good or fair? The Japanese since Khrushchev's times have been gundating and by the way he promised them three boxes. Further, the continuity of foreign policy ..... The history drags on for 70 years, as no one interrupted economic cooperation and the Japanese did not spread rot with sanctions, on the contrary, they were bypassed through them, different interesting machines were bought. But Putin and Lavrov for some reason must necessarily strangle the samurai economy in the bud, clean the emperor's face and pile on Fujiyama, otherwise they themselves know who. sad

              We've been trading for 70 years and nothing. What actually happened? Has the position of the Japanese changed? The usual ritual duty statement. For every statement of the vest, you will not be enough to tear the clothes. If you can't do that, write that Hokkaido is a Russian land and Ainu should be free. Let the local metallurgists eat up their baldness.
              If you think that war should be declared or the diplomats expelled, at least explain why now?

                Is it difficult to answer a question posed bluntly, especially when it concerns you personally? Sulking? Education is not enough, is one rudeness left?

                  Why is it hard? Since they did not understand the position (probably because of an overabundance of education), I will try as simply and intelligibly as possible.
                  I think that the next ritual duty statement should be answered with the same ritual duty statement. The caravan goes the Japanese write. I hope the answer is clear?
                  By the way, why the Russo-Japanese war should begin right now, you have not explained.

    Maybe it's time to call "partners" in more adequate terms? Not enemies (yet), but "this country", "neighbors on the planet" at last. And then having such partners, and enemies are not necessary ... Yes, and the VVP with the Minister of SVL is time to take off the pink glasses and put them in their safe. Comrade Stalin. And after that - Japan, and whose Hokkaido? And where did the subjects of the Russian Empire, the Ainu, the Orthodox churches go? The Ains were massacred, the churches were burnt ... And what about the gold (which our Slavic brothers, Czechs, buried)? Do you want islands? Only with a gift of a couple of megatons, if cho! IMHO.

    These islands are required from the Japanese by the Americans for bases. There will be no islands - again bombing, as then. America needs peace and the entire planet otherwise they will burst.

    1. To cancel the 54-year contract
    2. Any negotiations on the ownership of the islands to stop once and for all
    3. To stop joint activities with Japan and not to let the Japanese into the islands under any guise
    4. Include in the strategy and the Constitution the possibility of the preventive use of the armed forces in the event of an external threat
    5. The absence of a peace treaty means a state of war, and therefore the Russian Federation has every reason to demonstrate its defense capability and, by analogy with the United States, simulate a nuclear strike against Japan.

    Japan needs it. I really need it. Japan, like a drug addict, sits on a dose of energy resources. Gas through a pipeline and just electricity through a submarine cable, for example. The only state nearby with abundant energy resources and able to sell them at an affordable price, guess who?
    The only incomprehensible is masochism with the islands. Japan needs a treaty more than Russia, but it sets its own impossible conditions with incomprehensible zeal.
    By the way, it reminds of Ukraine, apparently this is a distinctive feature of countries under external control.
