Vladimir Putin in an interview with Japanese media: "Russia has no territorial problems with Japan"

57
Before the official visit to Japan, the President of Russia gave an interview to the Japanese television company Nippon TV and the newspaper Yomiuri. Almost immediately we were talking about a “territorial dispute” between Japan and Russia. That is how the question was posed by a Japanese journalist. The president of the Russian Federation answered that Russia has no territorial problems with Japan.


Vladimir Putin in an interview with Japanese media: "Russia has no territorial problems with Japan"


Vladimir Putin quotes Kremlin press service:
Russia has no territorial problems with Japan. It is Japan that believes that it has territorial problems, but we are ready to discuss it.


Vladimir Putin:
You now recalled the 56 agreement of the year, and I recall that, at the initiative of Japan, these negotiations were later terminated. And at the request of my Japanese colleagues in 2000, we returned to discussing the possibility of concluding a peace treaty based on the agreement of 56. But in the 56 agreement of the year, two islands are mentioned, and now you yourself said that the prime minister raises the question of four islands. So, we have already gone beyond the agreement of the 56 year, this is a completely different situation and a different formulation of the question.


According to Vladimir Putin, it is necessary to build an atmosphere of trust, friendship and cooperation between the two states. In addition to trade and economic ties, according to the Russian leader, we can talk about the application of joint efforts in the field of international security.
Vladimir Putin noted that the situation in which there is no peace treaty between the two neighboring states, he considers an anachronism.

The Russian president added that Russia would sign a peace treaty on the basis of its own interests.

Recall that the Russian president will make his visit to Japan on December 15-16.

By the way, Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Japanese journalists began with the fact that they inquired about the health of the Yume dog. This Akita Inu dog in 2012 was presented to Vladimir Putin by the governor of the Japanese prefecture Akita. Vladimir Putin showed the Japanese guests Yume, who was in a great mood ...

        With a very high degree of probability, our islands will not give up. If the end of the 90s and the beginning of the 2000s were now, the Yapov would have had another option, and they would meet, talk, conclude a couple of contracts for the supply of LNG and oil to Japan, and that’s all. The likelihood of signing a peace treaty in the very near future is low due to the position of the Yap: you give us islands, we will give you a piece of paper stating the current actual state of affairs request Ours will not fall for it.
        Ours needs much more than just a paper statement of the peace that has existed for so long, and trade with Japan.

          I like how accurately and briefly Lavrov answered the question ..!
          "Crimea is not a problem, but the territory of Russia ..!"
          So Putin answered in the same sense ... good
          Russia has no territorial problems with Japan. This Japan believes that it has territorial problems, but we are ready to discuss it.

          As said, that is beautiful ..!

          They can't see a damn thing, when I watched this meeting on TV, I whinnied like a horse. Glory to our GDP, made it clear to the Japanese that they should not even think about something. By the fact that he first frightened the Japanese with their own dog, and then, when I looked closely, I realized that our commander-in-chief is a little date and speaks with the Japanese in a rasslabone, and in the language of diplomacy, I think, this means: - "Who are you ? What to talk to you about, bedding p-i-n = d = o-stan? " And the direct statement that China is our best friend now makes it clear to the Japanese that they are not shining.

      The whole trick is that we and Yapy need a peace treaty BUT! The USA Master absolutely does not need them .. They are in terrible dreams (by analogy with Germany) see our mutually beneficial cooperation .. This is a knife in the heart of all American politics in the Far East, just getting the necessary resources, markets, and much more .. Japan is quite may violate the rule of law with the USA, which is fundamentally not permissible for the latter .. here the dog is buried, and not in some godforsaken islands .. Good relations between Russia and Japan are unacceptable for the USA! This is goodbye to the base, and Japan lending to the United States, and the latter’s economy as a result of cooperation with Russia .. I repeat this is a direct and very significant threat to the United States ..

    The Japanese have no powerful allies except the United States. And the US can tactfully step aside over time. They have their own problems before (in general, you will be waist-deep). China presses and the farther, the stronger. The Japanese economy is in recession and a strong recovery is not expected.
    So Japan is more interested in Russia than Russia in Japan.

        Rating given is total. If we talk in more detail: Russia is interested in Japan as a place for the sale of its energy resources and food. In their technology, money, business projects. As the same counterweight, in the long run, to China. Given all this, GDP can go as much as possible to give up two islands, at least agree on their joint economic development. Intermediate options - joint island management.

          Ustrushan has the most accurate analysis of the situation, the only thing is not the japs ​​who are more interested in us, but we (our government) are interested in them.
          And to be honest, I have friends who love Japan, anime (although they have not been children for a long time, but as they say: whatever the peasant would not amuse, if only he would not cry), they go there on holiday trips. So I advised them to buy land, which is now dumped on these two islands, in order to get Japanese citizenship later.
          I think in the near future it will be clear whether I was right or not.

Just don’t think that it was Gorbachev and Yeltsin or Medvedev who gave it away. The islands to China are purely the "work" of the GDP, and the Barents Sea and the oil and gas deposits too, Medvedev was then as the head of the Pound from the Golden Calf.

      The Japanese government intends to make a promise to Russia that in the event of the return of the four disputed Kuril Islands of Japan, military facilities and US forces will not be located on them. This was reported by Kyodo, citing diplomatic sources.
