Japan: negotiations with Russia will be long

The signing of a peace treaty with Russia will take a long time, because this is not an easy task. This conclusion of the Japanese leadership was voiced by the Secretary General of the Cabinet of Ministers of Japan, Yoshihide Suga.

Japan: negotiations with Russia will be long

Recall that on January 22, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe held talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Naturally, one of the main topics for discussion was just the signing of a peace treaty.

It is clear that the main stumbling block in this matter is the South Kuril Islands. In Tokyo, they stubbornly consider them their territory, while in Russia they emphasize that they are not going to compromise their territorial integrity.

Therefore, when representatives of Japan say that the negotiation process with Russia will be long, they, of course, expect to convince Moscow to make concessions. But this is hardly possible, and what a long negotiation process it is currently possible to talk about if consultations on a peace treaty have been ongoing for more than sixty years!

Yoshihide Suga, general secretary of the Japanese government, commenting on the meeting between Putin and Abe, called it constructive negotiations. But he did not disclose more precise details of the dialogue, and this is understandable. His words are also clear that concluding a peace treaty cannot be brought closer in a few negotiations.

The Russian leadership is really not going to give the South Kuril Islands to the Japanese, therefore there is nothing to boast of a high-ranking official from the Land of the Rising Sun.

    -All of these negotiators from Japan .., like jackals and hyenas near a sick and decrepit lion ... -Previously, all this brethren could not come close to a powerful and potential strongman ... and only in the distance just pulled her tails ...
    -And now all this pack has sensed .. that her "can burn out" and so it climbs and climbs .., more and more impudent., Anticipating and anticipating its benefits ...
    -And what for Russia Japanese money and other promises ... -For the entire period of communication between Russia and Japan, "real friendly relations" did not take place (on the contrary ... more and more military conflicts and wars) ...
    - So is it worth trying today to "start making friends" ... when Japan is again very strong and also has a "patron" (very strong and very unfriendly for Russia) ...
    -So what can come out of such "friendship" ..? -To do this, just read about all the historical events .. concerning relations between Russia and Japan (and many "eyewitnesses and participants" of these "recent events" are still alive) ... -This is the "complete answer" ... - to all attempts to "make friends" between Russia and Japan ...
