Japanese Prime Minister is serious about the territorial issue with Russia
Speaking to the former Kuril Islands citizens, the head of Government of Japan has pointed out that he wants to hold high-level talks to put an end to the territorial issue, as RIA informs us with the link on Kyodo agency.

Russian President will be on a visit to Japan for two days – 15th and 16th December.

Russia and Japan have been trying to enter into a contract for several decades, but the obstacle is the issue on the Kuril Islands affiliation. By the end of November Vladimir Putin has reiterated the readiness to negotiate with Japan on this issue, describing the absence of a treaty as the anachronism.

In early September Putin stressed that Russia didn’t sell territories.

Japan claims its right to four islands: Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan, Habomai rocks, referring to a bilateral Trade and Border agreement drawn up in 1855. 

Moscow’s position is that the South Kuriles were included in USSR following the results of the World War II, and Russian Sovereignty over them is beyond a doubt.

According to the poll the majority of Russian citizens are categorically oppose the transfer of the islands to Japan. (78 per cent) 71 per cent votes are against the compromiss, which involves transmission to the Japan only two small islands – Shikotan and Habomai.
