Japanese Foreign Ministry declined to answer the question of participation in the Victory Parade in Moscow

57

Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi did not answer the question about the participation of his country's representatives in the Victory Parade in Moscow. He stated that he would not like to discuss this topic.


The Japanese Foreign Minister gave such an answer to the question of one of the journalists who were invited today to the next press conference of the Foreign Ministry of the Land of the Rising Sun.

The journalist asked Motegi if Tokyo would give a positive response to the invitation of a colleague from the Russian Foreign Ministry to attend the celebrations in Moscow on June 24. It was about the telephone talks held the day before by the heads of the foreign affairs agencies of Russia and Japan.

The head of the Japanese Foreign Ministry replied that the conversation with Sergey Lavrov was devoted to the fight against COVID-19, the economic cooperation of the two countries, the signing of a peace treaty and other issues. The minister is ready to discuss all this with reporters. And the topic of the upcoming parade is not one of the topics that he intends to speak with the press:

I would like to refrain from answering questions related to other topics.

Shortly before this, Tokyo found out through diplomatic channels the details of the ceremonies in Moscow dedicated to the Victory Day.

      Do not push them ...

      It is already extremely bitter and uncomfortable for them to realize that they are defeated, and the winner in no way wants to talk about territorial concessions on their part ...

          Actually, if you do not understand that the "LPNR" is a splinter from the "prosperous Outskirts", which brought the region to such a state, then what can we talk about with you?

            this is a splinter from the "prosperous Outskirts"

            Since 2014, you have been steering there as you want, given that the DPR was the richest and most prosperous region of Ukraine. Have you begun to live much better? Can you see the light at the end of the tunnel? Or go in the opposite direction?
            PS: But the “conquered”, while the conquered by no means the USSR, do not bother about living standards, he is quite happy with them. What a bad “outskirts”, so brought the region that for 6 years can’t be restored ... maybe yours and ours from above, who don’t want to restore?

        The Japanese were allies of Hitler, one of the Axis countries. Because of them, we kept a decent amount of troops in the Far East. Let's just say: they participated in the Great Patriotic War indirectly.

          And how many times the commander of the Far Eastern Front, General Iosif Apanasenko, sent "Siberian divisions" near Moscow in 1941, and so on twice. If the Japanese wanted to attack, they would attack, and who knows what the outcome of the war would be. Many of my family were sent to these "Siberian divisions" and not all returned home to Transbaikalia.

            Apanasenko, instead of departing, formed new divisions. Which, perhaps, could turn the tide in the west of the country. But they were forced to stand in the east.

      Why do we need the losers at the Victory Parade? This is a celebration of the winners.But it is necessary to legitimize the anti-comonitic breakthrough of ninety 1 years ..... Hop, hop and became a counter-marshal with an army, not commanding an army for a minute. The boot did not smell a single second ---- We were losing Hungary, you hee hee , and my battalion commander told me that his army br. front-line subordination covered the front in Hungary. That's how they kept it! Years have passed, detente, rearrangement ----- now the Reinforced NATO wings stand against the weakened regiments of the Russian Air Force, but in every lively topic these "marshals" appear, a persistent feeling that they do not care what to comment on, just to shrug it off without going into the landscape The boys either do not represent the massive rise of the NATO Air Force or are stupid by the propaganda.

      In general, given the Japanese mentality (and I dare to consider myself far from an expert, but at least more or less versed in this matter - well, I have a hobby that is connected just with Japan), in plain Russian this means "We got a spit in the face, but in order not to wipe it off, we will pretend that it never happened."

      By the way, there is an awesome illustrated diary of one of the Japanese soldiers of the Kwantung army, who was captured by the Soviet Union. The thing, in principle, is among those who are in the subject, well-known, but who have not yet - very good. recommend. The guy definitely had a talent for drawing. And his comments on the drawings are devoid of any malice.

      Sorry, I missed. I wanted to answer you about the "weirdness of the invitation". See my comment just above.
      In general, everything is fair. Has Abe already graciously allowed the Russians to "live" in the Kuril Islands without eviction? Already, apparently anticipating the transfer of the islands? Disgusting? Disgusting, and even what (not talking about what happened in Vladivostok at the annual festival of Japanese cinema). Finally, they also received something quite caustic and offending "proud samurai honor" in return. =) Simple notes of protest to them. It's just purely Russian jerking the answer went.

    Maybe someone does not like the word "victory", but it's true. What does the victory of our ancestors have to do with it? The union fought against the Japanese, so why invite them? I understand the Mongols, the Chinese, the former republics of the Union. The rest must be looked at. Whom does the Kremlin want to invite the Japanese to? Really winners. The very fact of inviting the Japanese is an insult to the memory of veterans.

    So it is understandable. Having received in the teeth in 1945, having lost the Kwantung army and the occupied territories, stand on Red Square with a tortured smile on his broad face? And were they invited to the Parade? This journalist probably decided to touch the Japanese and put him in a not-so-comfortable position.
