Tokyo reaffirmed Japanese sovereignty over the South Kuril Islands

Tokyo again spoke of Japanese sovereignty over the "northern territories." According to the Kyodo agency, the Japanese government returned to the Blue Book of Diplomacy the wording on the ownership of the southern Kuril Islands.


At a meeting of the Japanese government, Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi presented the annual report on the country's foreign policy, entitled "The Blue Book of Diplomacy." According to the agency, this year’s document again appeared in a statement stating that the "northern territories", namely Kunashir, Iturup, Shikotan and Habomai, are "islands to which Japan’s sovereignty extends."

The publication drew attention to the fact that this wording appeared due to the fact that last year in the document the statement about the belonging of the "four northern islands of Japan" was absent, although in 2018 it was in place. According to the news agency, this is due to Tokyo’s attempt in 2019 to solve the territorial problem with Moscow by concluding a peace treaty using a “milder formulation” for this. However, the replacement did not bring anything and negotiations again reached an impasse, after which a decision was made to return the wording "on the sovereignty of Japan over the southern Kuril Islands."

Recall that Japan claims four islands of the southern Kuril Islands, claiming that Russia owns them illegally. In Tokyo, the return of these islands is the main condition for concluding a peace treaty. Moscow, in turn, declares that Russia's sovereignty over the islands is not in doubt, and in order to conclude a peace treaty in Japan, it is necessary to recognize the results of World War II, including the ownership of the Russian islands.

      Or whose ally in the lost Cold War, or whose ally is in the New Cold War. 1945 was not yesterday.

      It is useless for the Japanese to remind this - they already know all this.
      Moreover, in Japan - with the connivance and goodwill on the part of the United States for the then war criminals and crimes of Japan - the same political force of the Japanese Nazis that ruled Japan during WWII ruled.

                In the future (or rather, already in the present), the territorial integrity of Russia is being consolidated through the constitution. That is, even discussing this issue will be a violation of our constitution. So, the train (we agreed to give 2 islands back from the Khrushchev era) has already left.

                  That is, at least two people are sure that the law prescribed in the Constitution prohibiting squandering (giving) Russian lands will not prevent the Japanese from acquiring their islands. Are you friends with your head?

        It is useless for the Japanese to remind this - they already know all this.
        Nevertheless, all sorts of reminding demarches must be done constantly. For example: since the Japanese love and understand all symbolism, plant a flowerbed of horseradish in the shape of the South Kuril Islands in front of the embassy in Tokyo. And in the center stick a small flag of Russia. You can generally arrange a daily morning small ceremony to raise moisture above a flower bed. And in the evening, the bottom.
        Let the Japanese rejoice.

          There are methods to deal with all kinds of ideas. True, these are not our "totalitarian" methods, but purely the most democratic:
          1. The expedition of Commander Piri somehow quickly brought the national idea of ​​self-isolation to nothing.
          2. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki somehow quickly added to the Japanese love of Americans (exaggerate, I remember the occupation).
          These are just fresh examples. It is possible even more ancient, when the most breathtaking ideas that existed for centuries, very quickly cut out to the root.

              You can fight ideas either in the style of the USSR after the Second World War, when the paradigm for the country is completely changing - we are building socialism in Eastern Europe, or by the above measures. When the carriers of ideas are roused so that in 10-20-30 years, the victims go by themselves from the most fleeting memory of those ideas.

                The victims have long gone nowhere and do not go anywhere. they found their roof, their fence and yapping from there.
                It is clear that the reflexes will not go anywhere, but now it is much more difficult to press on them.
                They press, if anything, of the very dull, who are trying to build their fence and hide behind it without a roof .... it didn’t work. For a bulldozer, any fence is nothing, if someone solid cannot support it.

      What does it have to do with it? WWII was a long time ago, the USSR was a long time ago, and currently samurai are more and more confident in their ability to return the island to themselves. For example, according to the Crimean scenario. An occasion for us to think about restoring the power of the Pacific Fleet.

And the owner - well, he’s not against it, the annexation of the Kuril Islands by Japan will only be on hand: Pacific Fleet will be even more difficult to get into the Pacific Ocean.

        Do not tell .... it's just talk for domestic use. Even if orderlies ignore the idea of ​​a nuclear-free country attacking a major nuclear power, then to capture the islands you need to have significant landing forces and means and work it out during numerous exercises ... which is not observed. But the SSN has other pressing problems - Korean missiles and the Chinese fleet ...

They will definitely be if we lose the islands. Well, you don’t like TNW, the strike of the Kyrgyz Republic with conventional warheads at nuclear power plants :))))

            There is just a grouping in the Kuril Islands. I'm talking about something else. This (capture of the Kuril Islands) is a complex and large-scale operation that needs to be prepared for years, otherwise an unprepared landing will kill itself on the Kuril nature .... there is nothing of the kind.

            All this talk about the Kuril Islands is talk about how a 10-grader with a knife will take away his wallet from a bandit with a gun and AKM .... the bandit is embarrassed to shoot at the student, so he will start to remove the bayonet-knife for fair play from AKM and the knife the student is better, etc. etc.

              The doctor can prescribe, this is a fact. Let's say the beautiful stigma is “terrorist and aggressor” with real sanctions from all sides, right down to the “ally” -China, which also needs nuclear exercises near its borders.

Your allegorical bandit undoubtedly has AKM, he just stayed at home in the basement. And the schoolboy is already not such a schoolboy for a long time, and his knife is quite serious: look at how the Pacific Fleet and the Japanese Navy relate. In general, in 1904-1905 we already went through this.

                  Forget about the strategic nuclear forces - no one will use them in such a conflict if they have not survived from the mind. Other holders of strategic nuclear forces can easily plummet in response, not wanting to figure out exactly where your "candles" flew.

                  With TNW, too, everything is still sad: its use can raise the degree of inadequacy to a level at which additional players decide to join the batch. And hardly on our side.

                  About the KR: so far there are only four distinct carriers on the Pacific Fleet (cruiser 1164 and three nuclear submarines 949A). Japan has a fair amount of URO destroyers technically capable of carrying the Tomahawks. Who here who can strike can be an open question.

                    There is no need for a school student’s strategic nuclear forces, it’s not about them ... well, "kick back" ... now imagine that the United States has acted on the DPRK .... we will respond to them with a fright so that they then respond us? Moreover, in this case, the unbelievable (strategic nuclear forces, not tactical nuclear weapons), the other "baboons" will be warned, and they will also show places to plow.

                    Which players? Niponiya, no one and no way to call, the six from under the shaft attacked !!!! to a permanent member of the UN Security Council and so on and so forth .... the question is not about the accession of the original Russian-Ainu island of Matsaya (Hokkaido) to the Ainu Republic of the Far Eastern Federal District ....

                    Technically capable (in theory, you think everything that can be shoved in Mk41, can be used ???) and carriers - these are 2 different things. Again, well, according to Vladik, they’ll start ... 1 city at the end of the world ...

                      That is why they are not joking with SNF. Just imagine: the conflict of two serious powers, all on the nerves. Suddenly, several ICBMs start and fly somewhere. And figs understand like this right away, where exactly: maybe, according to the DPRK, or maybe (by the noise) - according to us. WBC squeaks in alarm. Here, your finger may also wave over the conditional red button.

                      The option "warn in advance" is also with a sweetheart. Firstly, this information on affiliate channels will not flow at all. Secondly, "We are going to pull a dozen ICBMs here, but not for you, honestly-honestly" - would you believe?

                      You do not seem to know how big politics is done. In the Asia-Pacific region there are many who have their own interests: we, Japan, China, Korea (s), the United States, and further on the little things. Military conflict is always an opportunity to replay the alignment of forces in one's own favor (in essence, wars are being fought for this). And there the main thing is to get into the right moment and on the right side. And it doesn’t matter who there is a member of, on whose side is historical justice, and so on.

                      As far as we know, at the moment the restrictions are purely legal: Japan doesn’t hold offensive weapons, so it doesn’t equip its destroyers with Tomahawks.

                    For Japan, the problem is also in the territory, very small areas suitable for living, and even non-nuclear weapons, cause a lot of problems with a compact population.

                And the schoolboy is already not such a schoolboy for a long time, and his knife is quite serious: look at how the Pacific Fleet and the Japanese Navy relate. In general, in 1904-1905 we already went through this.


                Actually, now the Japanese fleet is a cut above the Pacific Fleet. I think that in the absence of a normal fleet in the Pacific, the landing operation in the Kuril Islands will not be such a difficult task for the Japanese. Defend ourselves with aviation? Well, they also have airfields on their side and planes are no worse.
                Therefore, it turns out that the most realistic option for us is missile strikes at conventional nuclear power plants. Further chaos in a highly urbanized society will complete its dirty business.

                As for China - this is unlikely. China has too many disputed territories, so it is unlikely that it will support the military option of resolving the issue of ownership, and it is unlikely to condemn the rebuff. Especially if Japan is the attacker.

            I’ll disappoint: in this situation, nuclear status will not help in any way, because a hypothetical nuclear strike (even in the case of nuclear weapons) will have political consequences for Russia far more severe than the loss of islands.
            If in the case of the Kuril Islands it came to the tactical nuclear weapons, then already deeply do not care about the political consequences. At least in the way you try to say.
            If we talk about the political consequences, there we will already talk about the new Yalta Conference and the Tokyo Tribunal. With participation in both events including China.

              I'm talking about the general approach:
              1. First, nameless polite people are formed that quickly neutralize the power structures (army, police, etc.)
              2. A referendum among the local population: "Do you want to become autonomy within Japan?"
              3. The "official" annexation of the referendum (which, of course, the majority will be in favor).

              The rest (like a polite delivery method) is the technical details.

                2. ...
                3. ...
                Funny.
                1. As soon as the "nameless polite people" begin to buzz, the whole Far East group will get on its ears. To neutralize it according to the scenario of the Crimea, unconditional 100% support of the population and the size of the attacking group of a breathtaking size are required. Moreover, the neutralization of the forces of the Far East should be the same bloodless. like in the Crimea. Because if blood spills, and it spills, because the Japanese are not Ukrainians, that is, they are not the same as we are in the mass consciousness, our answer will be in the style of defense of Sevastopol and the Brest Fortress. Already at this stage, referenda and other things can be forgotten.
                2. Even when fulfilling paragraph 1, which is pure fantasy, it is necessary to retain not only Vladivostok, but a vast territory with an undeveloped road network and a lot of settlements. And hold for a time sufficient for peaceful civil registration: the preparation and conduct of a referendum. Moscow in this case will not sleep all this time. Tskhinval will not let you lie. They tried to neutralize a much smaller Russian contingent. Remind reaction? Even on condition of the commander in chief - Medvedev.
                3. On the third point, it will most likely be like with Georgia in the 2008th. That is, Tokyo will be disrupted and not finished off. Only the scale will be much larger and more remote. Just the same with the use of nuclear weapons. Because preparing a full-scale landing in Japan is incredibly expensive (I'm not just talking about finances).
                Summarizing: for Japan, such an operation, with the stated goals and objectives, is tantamount to shooting yourself in the foot. Around the hip joint.

            Yes, and there is no need for any of them. There, the distances are trifling; Yapi can even support their landing force from their own territory. So if they decide on this operation, then they may well carry it out. The protection of the islands is now a little effort, but there is still cause for concern.

                Putin probably remembered Stalin and Matsuoka (only then there was cognac) .To pull the minister to his side, Stalin acted wisely in Georgian. After unsuccessful negotiations, Stalin personally arrived at the station with Molotov to see off the Japanese minister. Neither before nor after did Stalin show such honor to anyone. Not even the heads of state were escorted.
                Stalin and Molotov arrived at the station not empty-handed. A generous table was laid in the carriage with delicious snacks and Georgian cognac, the train stood and waited several hours. Matsuoka was so moved that he reveled as a child. Molotov writes that he and Stalin had almost in their arms to bring the minister who had bitten cognac into the compartment. Thanks to Matsuoka, in April 1941 they signed the Soviet-Japanese non-aggression treaty. Although the Japanese after the start of the Second World War in 1941 sent him to prison, and then in 1945, the Americans. But now the Americans rule the Japanese, you can drink, you can not drink.

    The Japanese, unlike Germany, are not going to repent. The heroization of war criminals continues, the falsification of WWII. In particular, that Japan fought with "Chinese terrorism." The war is called the incident, and surrender is its end.

    Some of the leaders of Japan urgently need to divert the attention of the Japanese from other problems that there is no desire to solve (and in the current pandemic situation, there are not enough of them), but at the same time the rating should be increased. Hence the new approach and expansive rhetoric. Long-tried and trouble-free reception ...

      Oh oh Is that all? There are other opinions. And the main thing from these opinions is that Russia is falling apart, and the Japanese are in a hurry to rush to stake something for themselves. That is a nod towards China. Of course, they should not wait for them, but nevertheless ...

    They will wait, that "the absence of a peace treaty" we will interpret directly :)))
    But in fact - a minor wrecking of pro-American forces (although today everything is pro-American there, but it is pro-American to the last drop of blood and the last living nippon).
    In the event that the United States leaves for its hemisphere, Nippon has no options to run to anyone at all - only to us ... both the Chinese and Koreans hate (both the communist and capitalist ones from the South Caucasus and Taiwan) and successfully push them out of their niche in the world division of labor.

    After the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, Japan received, as necessary, most of the territories belonging to and under the auspices of the Russian Empire:
    - Russia recognized Japan’s right to rule in Korea.
    - Russia ceded part of the territory of Sakhalin Island
    - Russia transferred the Kwantung Peninsula along with Port Arthur to Japan.
    Japan took this for granted, and the Russian Empire was not opposed. But when Japan lost in World War II, the Soviet Union got everything back, and rightfully won the Kuril Islands (since Japan took it in 1905). And what kind of conversations can be now, as my teacher said, "It was better to fight, but now you need to grind less with your tongue."

    This is due to the slurred position of Russia, then we will consider the transfer of two islands, then the joint use of marine resources, joint economic activity, there is still such nonsense, is that what is it for? Why let in an enemy who marks these territories? And the Ministry of Foreign Affairs needs to abandon diplomatic formulations in explaining to Japan the sovereignty of Russia over the islands, and after such a statement expel the ambassador and break the agreements on joint use.

    Though in the blue, even in the red, even in the gray-brown-raspberry-these islands are the territory of Russia.

    It’s time in Russia to pass a law that the sanctity of the borders of Russia cannot be discussed anywhere and with no one
    Coca level. Starting with a conversation between two liberals in the kitchen and at Echo of Moscow, and ending with a conversation between Lavrov or
    Putin with foreign politicians at any negotiations wherever they did not pass. For it should
    immediately follow the article of the criminal code of the Russian Federation. This should also be informed to those who, at the official level, sit down at the negotiating table with Russia at
    any topics. But the expansion of the borders of the Russian Federation within the borders of the Russian Empire of 1917 should also be reflected in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. That is, if the top officials of the Russian
    The Federation does not take enough measures or sabotages this expansion of borders to natural and
    drawn by the ancestors of Russia and God within the borders of the Russian Empire in 1917, then for such sabotage
    slowing down the restoration of the Russian Empire, there should also be an article in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

    On the Japanese islands, the Ainu appeared about 13 thousand years BC. e. [13] and created the Neolithic culture of Jomon. In the Jomon era, the Ainu inhabited all the Japanese islands - from Ryukyu to Hokkaido, as well as the southern half of Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands and the southern third of Kamchatka - as evidenced by the results of archaeological excavations

    The confrontation between the state of Yamato and the Ainu lasted almost one and a half thousand years. For a long time (starting from the VIII and almost to the XV century), the border of the Yamato state passed in the area of ​​the modern city of Sendai, and the northern part of Honshu was very poorly developed by the Japanese. Militarily, the Japanese were inferior to the Ainu for a very long time.

    As for the "Japanese" islands of the Kuril chain: Kunashir (by the way the Ainu name Kunashiri) was independent of the Japanese
    In 1769, the centurion Ivan Cherny reported from the Ainu that there is a Japanese fortress on Kunashir. The Japanese carried out the Ainu genocide. What led to armed uprisings: for example, the Ainu revolt in Kunashir in 1789.

    The 1855 Treaty established the state border of the Russian Empire and Japan between Urup and Iturup.

    The Japanese, the newcomer people — who exterminated the local population and used them as slaves — have no justifiable right (other than the long-acting treaty of 1855) to claim these territories.

    I would generally take advantage of the special status of these territories, giving the islands the status of the Ainu Autonomous Okrug as part of the Russian Federation.
    Preservation of these territories as territories under the sovereignty of the Russian Federation for the preservation of the original Ainu people, practically destroyed by the Japanese invaders.

    It's no use talking to them and accepting their delegations. All this nagging and our reaction to this only erodes the status of our international diplomacy. In general, it would be good for the state. level introduce phased restrictions dip. and economic relations with Japan, if this nonsense continues in the future. One thing must be understood - this country DOES NOT WANT to conclude a peace treaty. Want-come and conclude. In the meantime, there’s nothing to talk about, much less to spend public funds on empty mouths.

    a decision was made to return the wording "on the sovereignty of Japan over the southern Kuril Islands."
    And what about sovereignty, for example over Okinawa? The most interesting thing is that these statements are made by the state in whose territory there are foreign military bases. Whose cow would moo about sovereignty.

    Gorbachev, okay, he is a traitor. He had to somehow make himself clear that he was "his own - bourgeois." But why did Putin raise the Kuril issue with Lavrov? After all, no one pulled Putin's tongue and no one stood with a gun at his head! Out of the blue they created a problem! And the Japanese, that the Chinese - just promise them, they will remind you of the century!

This is an impudent audience and explaining to them “about conscience” is a futile exercise! // Port Arthur, Manchuria ... - wasn’t it enough and again to go to these natives voluntarily just stupidity and that’s all

    - If they do not agree with the terms of surrender, then many neighboring countries have something to present for those samurai tricks that were committed and in general - whether Japan itself can exist with such intentions and old manners, because this is very, very true for neighboring states! - Let him have this in mind necessarily! - Now is not the time and it’s better to sit "quietly", otherwise it will fall under the "distribution"!

    there is also a good discussion:
    https://inosmi.ru/infographic/20110218/166650323.html
    one author:
    "these territories are not part of the Kuril Islands, which Japan refused under the 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty." Pars pro toto. The whole cannot equal parts. "... create the danger that we will mistakenly take part for the whole. ... encourage us - dangerously - to mistake parts for the whole. "Japan did not renounce Sev. Smoked, and from the Kuril. 1951 San Francisco Treaty 8 Septembeer. Chapter II. Territory. Article 2. (c) "Japan renounces all right, title and claim to the Kurile Islands, ... Japan waives the rights, rights and claims to Kurile Islands, ..." inosmi.ru/fareast/20110216/166572662.html 16/02/11 World in our time: Russian anti-aircraft missiles in the Kuril Islands (Commentary Magazine, USA) J. Dyer (J. E. Dyer) PJ Crowley made it equally clear that the treaty does not apply to defense of the Kuril Islands, because the islands are “not under Japanese administration.” J. Crowley just as clearly indicated that the treaty does not apply to the defense of the Kuril Islands, since they are not `` under the control of Japan. '' If yap. the tops look at the San Francisco Treaty and see, after the words "I renounce it" instead of the real 4-hieroglyphs "Chishima retto" (Kurile Archipelago, Kuril Islands) 4 virtual "Hoppo no Chishima" (Northern Kuril Islands), what can to be clinical DIAGNOSIS? All the Kuril Islands were called and are called in Japanese by the same name, it sounds something like “Chishima”, which translates as “1000 islands”. The South Kuril Islands are called “Chishima Mines” or “South Chishima”. In the description of the modern revisionist map of the Nemuro Prefecture, where they painstakingly brought the South Kuril Islands. a combination of “Minami Chishima” characters is used. Moreover, in international documents, in particular in memorandum 677 (a separate item, among others, which removed the Kuril Islands from the sovereignty of Japan), the English transcription of Chishima, that is, all the Kuril Islands, was used. It is funny and sad at the same time! Yap-I look like a furious husband. who discovered after a divorce that he was denied access to the body. If you clearly said PAS in the game, you will not succeed in getting involved in a new game! Japan itself recanted in San Francisco in 1951. If the mother gives the child to the orphanage and signs a notarized refusal of the child, then what is the case of the person who wants to adopt to the point that he was not a witness to the signing of the refusal? The same goes for a divorce. How many husbands married to ex-wives have witnessed that divorce? Here we have that in Japan, in the Russian Federation, God forgive me, lawyers. LAW clearly distinguishes between property lost (and newly acquired) and KINDLY . When property is lost, the law discerns that the loss occurred by chance and against the will of the owner. Found someone else's property can not be appropriated and must be returned to the owner in due time. On the contrary, when the owner voluntarily partes with his property, the right claims that the property becomes not owned by anyone, nobody, and, therefore, not only the aforementioned property, but also all rights to its maintenance and use passes to the FIRST person who has taken possession of it them. The claims to the San Francisco agreement are unfounded, since for the Anglo-Saxons the rights of the USSR were self-evident. Japan renounced Kurile (not North-ern Kurile, я. Chishima (not Hoppo-no Chishima) by mature thinking, 6 years after the war. What else do you need FORMULA OF DISCLAIMER?
