The parties will have to find a compromise.
Negotiations of Russia and Japan to end the war does not mean that Moscow will automatically transfer to Japan the Kuril Islands.
This was reported by press Secretary of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Peskov, the TV channel “Russia 1”.
Peskov said that the parties will have to find a compromise that will not contradict the national interests of any party. He added that during negotiations will be considered allied obligations to Japan before Washington.
According to the press-Secretary of Putin, Russia has a negative experience of negotiations with NATO, which is “creeping expansion” towards the borders of the Russian Federation. Peskov added that Moscow will remind the authorities of Japan that those supporting sanctions against Russia.
After world war II, the four Islands of the Kuril ridge – Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and the Habomai group – became part of the USSR. Japan disputes this and is seeking the return of the Islands under the jurisdiction of Tokyo.
Because of a dispute about the Kuril Islands, Japan and Russia still have not signed a peace Treaty after the Second world war.
