The Russian foreign Ministry responded to the decision of Japan claims to the Kuril Islands

the Decision of Tokyo to introduce to the “Blue book on diplomacy,” the formulation of Japanese sovereignty over the Southern Kuriles is contrary to creating a favorable atmosphere in bilateral relations. This was stated to journalists by the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

As reported “Interfax”, it is noted that the Russian foreign Ministry drew attention to the return of the wording in the “Blue book diplomacy” of Japan for 2020 and links “on the so-called question of belonging” of the South Kuril Islands in the context of Russian-Japanese dialogue on a Peace Treaty.

“we Believe that such a step directly contradicts the set at the highest level the task of creating a favorable atmosphere in bilateral relations”, — said Zakharov. Legitimate sovereignty over all the Kuril Islands belongs to the Russian Federation after the Second world war in accordance with international legal instruments, including the UN Charter, she concluded.

we will Remind, earlier it was reported that the Japanese government made claims to the Southern Kuriles in the updated version of the “Blue book on diplomacy.” The report said that these Islands are the “Northern territories of Japan” and “under the sovereignty” of the country.
