Japan announced its desire to conclude a peace treaty with the Russian Federation, despite the Ukrainian conflict

Tokyo intends to conclude a peace treaty with Russia following World War II, said Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. The country is also going to resolve the territorial dispute over the Kuril Islands, the prime minister said during a speech at a plenary session of the lower house of parliament.

Japanese-Russian relations are in a difficult state due to the situation in Ukraine, but our country will adhere to policyaimed at solving the territorial problem and concluding a peace treaty
Kishida emphasized.

In 2022, the Japanese prime minister has already made a similar statement. Then the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov called it impossible to negotiate a peace treaty with Japan, since Tokyo's actions turned the country into an unfriendly one for Russia.

Since the end of World War II, the three Kuril Islands have been the subject of a territorial dispute between Russia and Japan: Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup, and the Khabomai ridge. These territories became Japanese after the Shimoda treaty was concluded by the Russian Federation and Japan in 1855.

As a result of the Second World War, the islands became Soviet, but in Tokyo this is not considered legal. In 1956, the USSR and Japan signed a Joint Declaration in which Moscow agreed to consider the possibility of transferring the Shikotan and Habomai Islands to Japan after the conclusion of a peace treaty, the fate of Kunashir and Iturup was not affected by the declaration. Subsequent negotiations came to nothing.

Earlier it became known that with a visit to Lviv arrived President of Poland Andrzej Duda and President of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda, whom Volodymyr Zelensky met. Experts saw in this visit the strengthening of a new political union, which can put an end to the division of Ukraine. And it is possible that the Polish president flew to Lviv precisely in order to take a closer look at the new territories, which will soon officially become part of his state.

    Japan announced its desire to conclude a peace treaty with the Russian Federation, despite the Ukrainian conflict

    So, Poland is going to cut off the land from Ukraine, Japan - from Russia.
    Who else? At the suggestion of the Americans, a club of beneficiaries / participants is gathering
    3rd world war.
    So far, Russia, by forcing the US to retreat, can reverse everything, however, there is less and less time left.
    The formation of new interests and plans that are no longer tied to the States makes the process of sliding into a world war autonomous, independent of them.
    When the war between Russia and NATO starts in Ukraine, it will be too late to force the US. Russia will be destroyed by NATO, and its territory and nuclear weapons will serve as a springboard for the US to attack China

      Do you think that during a NATO missile attack, Russia will not be able to press the "button"?

        Our task is not to find ourselves in a hopeless situation to take away more enemies with us, but to not bring the matter to it.
        When the war with NATO starts, it will support itself, regardless of the will of its arsonist. It will be too late to crush him then. Wars end according to their own laws.
        After the start of a war with NATO, which will quickly develop into a world war, we will be sentenced. Then even if we press any "button", the war will continue, and we will still be defeated. Just after pressing the strategic "button" we will receive, in addition to defeat, also physical destruction. Not delayed.
        Thus, no one will press it - it will not bring any benefit, and death will be delayed.
        Another thing is the threat of destruction to the enemy in a situation where he is still in control of events, and you can still take advantage of this retreat and lead the country out of a disastrous situation. Just like it was in 1962

            it seems to me that Russia must prove its determination, strike nuclear weapons at Lvov, then NATO's ardor will cool down, otherwise not only Davydov, but also some Western rulers have lost fear

              vladimir1155 (vladimir):
              It seems to me that Russia must prove its determination, strike nuclear weapons at Lvov,

              I think that here you are a real provocateur of the West.
              If Russia, as you say, hits nuclear weapons on Lviv, the following things will happen:
              1. Russia will use nuclear weapons against a sovereign state, against its major city, against the civilian population. In the eyes of the world (and in mine too) this is a monstrous war crime from any point of view, including from the universal.
              2. Russia's positions in the UN will remain only on paper, the United States, relying on this a shame Russia, with the approval of the world community, will find ways to actually exclude it from all UN processes
              3. The forces that have long been intimidating Western society with the danger of Russia attacking Western countries in order to conquer them will receive powerful support, which will lead to the unification of the population of these countries around their governments to protect their countries and their homes under the auspices of NATO.
              4. NATO will finally receive the unanimous support of society for the war and the destruction of Russia, war will be declared on it, possibly with the unanimous support of the UN. No one will pay attention to the paper status of a member of the Security Council
              5. Russia, having inflicted a nuclear strike on Ukraine, will continue the implementation of the US plan to draw NATO states into a war with it, strengthen it, make it inevitable.
              6. Even those countries that under other conditions would have remained on the sidelines will join the war with Russia. The anti-Russian coalition under the auspices of the United States will increase significantly.
              7. It is possible that the power of Russia will fall already under this pressure from the futility of the war. If not, Russia will be defeated.
              No one will touch strategic weapons, because. It will not save Russia anymore. It will only increase the severity of her guilt.
              I have already written about further probable US plans in previous comments.
              This is how the Americans will turn us "saints" into an instrument of their satanic evil and force us to work for ourselves before death
              Let me remind you that, unlike the Americans, Eurasia is our home, and the countries of Europe are its population. This is our living space. Having made its population, like Ukraine, its natural enemies we will again work against ourselves and for the Americans

    Perhaps we will sign a peace treaty with the Japanese if Japan gives Russia two Japanese islands at the choice of the Russian Federation.
