Japan: All four islands are ours

While society in Russia is excited by the discussion of the idea of ​​concluding a peace treaty with Japan and fears that part of the Kuril Islands might be transferred to Tokyo's control, the Japanese leadership does not demonstrate peace-loving moods. There is only one thing behind the rhetoric of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has often visited Moscow, about the prospects for cooperation between the two countries - the desire to get the Kuril Islands.

Speaking to the lower house of the Japanese parliament on January 30, Abe called the islands "northern territories" and stated that Tokyo continues to regard them as their original lands.

He also said that in order to sign a peace treaty with Russia, Japan insists on determining the ownership of all four islands - Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai.

Northern territories are our lands. No changes to this position.

- said Abe.

At present, the Prime Minister noted, the parties are conducting a dialogue based on "all agreements reached to date," but the Japan-Soviet Declaration of 1956 remains the only document ratified by Moscow and Tokyo.

The ninth article of this document assumes the continuation of negotiations on the conclusion of a peace treaty and determines that after its signing, the Habomai ridge and the island of Shikotan will be transferred to Japan

- said Abe.

It turns out that at first glance, there is a certain contradiction in the position of the head of the Japanese government. On the one hand, he calls all the Kuril Islands “his territory,” on the other hand, he relies on a document in which he talked about transferring only Shikotan and Habomai, and even that on certain conditions. Unfortunately, there is really no contradiction. This resembles the predator’s desire to grab at least a person’s finger, so that in the future - bite off the whole hand. Only one question arises: is it possible to have a serious business with such a partner and to trust his promises? For example, solemn assurances that the US military bases will not be deployed on the islands.

    The question is different. And why do we need this peace treaty ???? To give the islands ??? Or the Japanese to whom it is necessary (from our government) not a feeble kickback promised ??? Something suspiciously ours started talking that it would be necessary to give up the islands and this topic is still being raised.

    How many yapas do not feed ....... The Japanese always have a bosom for Russia. You can never tame them. America has long understood this. What idiots had the idea of ​​negotiating with the Japanese? Tell the surname! We have the 5th column in the government. Marching without any fear.

    What are you writing about? "The Army and Navy are our friends" The words of Alexander have not lost their relevance over the centuries.

    Who are the rulers? The head that should please everyone and he has to wriggle so that the state is calm. What would happen if all of their negative decrees were approved before the election? Abe is also Japanese.
    And these charter flights maintain a tone among residents of both states. We freak out, and the Japanese rejoice that the rulers are NECESSARY, keep everyone in check.

    This Abe is not a relative of Poroshenko for an hour? One reads the mantra about the Kuril Islands, the other about the Crimea ... It is necessary to remind the Yaps that the island of Hokkaido is originally Russian land, before the revolution there lived Ainu with Russian passports, which the Yapes later evicted and generally arranged genocide for them ....

    Eh, listen, dear, it was yours - it became ours! And soon Hokkaido is chopping off - get ready to recognize the new Ainu Republic as part of the Russian Federation!

    And then the original Japanese? And what to do with the border of Germany and Poland, or France and Germany? There was nothing to get involved in the war to conquer non-native Japanese territories and lose it. If you, the Japanese, are so proud and principled, what are the Americans doing on your native land? I don’t understand why we need to talk to the American satellite on this subject for cookies.

    The Japanese appetites are growing right before our eyes, it has already become obvious that it is time to stop all this stupid fuss around our Kuril Islands legally belonging to Russia, this has gone too far and all further conversations and all kinds of negotiations on the transfer of the Kuril Islands to Japan should be stopped urgently, it only undermines our national interests and at least absolutely does not give Russia any advantages. For seventy years we have lived quietly without this notorious peace treaty with Japan, we will live quite well without it, and just as much, this treaty is simply not worth it.
