The problem of “northern territories” Russia must stop distorting history

Why is there a problem of “northern territories”? Must adhere to Japan’s position on this issue. During his visit to Belgium, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Japan, Fumio Kishida (Fumio Kishida) said: “The situation in Ukraine has been changed due to the force. This also applies to the problem of the northern territories. ” Russia does not agree with this statement.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that the South Kurils legally belong to the Russian Federation since the Second World War. Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that Japan does not want to learn the lessons of history.

The reaction of the Secretary General of the Government of Japan Yoshihide Suga (Yoshihide Suga), saying that it is wrong to reproach Japan of distorting history, was quite natural.

USSR invaded Japan, violating the Soviet-Japanese Neutrality Pact, and usurped the native Japanese Northern Territories by Japan after the adoption of the Potsdam Declaration and the end of the war. It is a historical fact. It hides the Russian objectionable her the truth.

The world community has harshly criticized Russia, which last year had annexed Crimea, violating international law. Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida simply explained the international community that the situation in Ukraine is comparable to the Kurils problem is that the status quo has been changed by force.

The hard answer to Russia due to the fact that it put pressure on the sore spot.

In this regard, it is necessary to pay attention to the reaction of Putin’s planned visit to Japan this year. In recent years, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has stepped up efforts to prepare the visit of the Russian leader in Japan, but it is inconceivable that the Russian side has used this visit as a lever of pressure on Tokyo.

The territorial issue is likely to become one of the important topics of the talks between President Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (Shinzo Abe). However, the visit and the talks would not make sense if Russia advance to deny historical facts. This should be reported to the Russian side.

The preparation of this visit did not help, and Russia’s intention to change the name of the airport on the island of Iturup from Japanese into Russian.

President Putin and Xi Jinping will jointly celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. China ignores international rules, strengthening its influence in the sea.

These countries are challenging the world order should not be for their own actions and accused Japan of distorting history. Tokyo is necessary to maintain a firm position on the “Northern Territories” and lead their own distinct counter.
