Japan will continue to inundate Russia with various surprises in order to get hold of the Kuril Islands. Tokyo refuses to accept Moscow’s position. They are looking for loopholes in order to occupy Russian territories at the decisive moment.
Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin made it clear that as long as he is in charge of the state, the Kuril Islands will not become part of Japan. He stressed that Moscow expects to develop relations with Tokyo, but this does not mean that in the future Russia will transfer the lands to Japan. However, these words were not heard abroad.
General Secretary of the Japanese Cabinet of Ministers Katsunobu Kato said that Tokyo will continue negotiations on the Kuril Islands with Moscow. According to him, the Japanese are not stopped by the fact that the RF Constitution has been amended.
“I think that the government will continue to be disposed to persistently negotiate in accordance with our main course towards resolving the territorial issue and concluding a peace treaty,” the Japanese secretary general said.
Kato’s position confirms that a US ally is trying to find methods to get his hands on the islands. They understand that the territory cannot be returned by military means, and they are trying to lure Moscow into an adventure where the Russian side will be forced to give up the land.
In addition, Japanese politicians play well on the theme of the islands. They use negotiations with the Russian side to increase their rating. If one of the politicians declares that the Kuril Islands will never become part of Japan, then this will critically affect the assessment of one or another government official.
