Japan and Russia share the Kuril Islands

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev acknowledged the futility of talks between Russia and Japan on the Kuril Islands. According to him, Moscow would never find a consensus on this topic with Tokyo.

“In the context of the fate of the Kuril Islands, this decision is historically justified, ripe and fair. Obviously, we would never have found any consensus with the Japanese on the island. Both we and they understood this before. So the talks on the Kuriles have always been ritual in nature, “Medvedev wrote in his official telegram channel.

According to Medvedev, Japan’s imposition of sanctions against Russia has finally demonstrated Japan’s interests. “It is now clear with whom they would coordinate the hypothetical text of the peace treaty. Now these talks have lost all meaning, “he concluded.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement refusing to negotiate a peace treaty with Japan. We are talking about ending the dialogue on the peace treaty, visa-free regime and joint economy in the Kuril Islands. The Foreign Ministry explained its decision by “the unfriendly nature of the unilateral restrictions imposed by Japan against Russia in connection with the situation in Ukraine.” Residents of the Kuril region supported Russia’s decision to abandon talks with Japan on the issue of islands.
