Japan cannot decide how many islands Russia should give them

50

The Japanese Blue Book on Diplomacy, published this year May 19, among other things, once again claims the sovereignty of the Land of the Rising Sun over several of the Kuril Islands belonging to Russia. But the quantities and names of these islands are not specified there.


The claims of Sankey Shimbun discuss the claims of Japan to the Russian Federation.

Tokyo has published the Blue Book on Diplomacy every year since 1957. It tells the people of Japan about the main directions of the country's foreign policy.

Japanese journalists drew attention to changes in the content of the latest edition of the Blue Book compared to last year's issue. This difference concerns Russian-Japanese relations, or rather, Tokyo’s territorial claims.

Almost all previous years in the book it was claimed that Japan possessed sovereignty over the four islands of the Kuril ridge, and only in a short period of time the "appetites" of Japan were limited only to Shikotan Island and the Habomai ridge. Last year, when consultations were actively ongoing between Moscow and Tokyo, the reference to the so-called “northern territories” was removed from the Blue Book. And this year it appeared again, but for some reason the authors decided not to mention either the names or the number of islands.

And when MPs tried to find out the official position of Japan on this issue from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country, Taro Kono, he deftly avoided answering:

I abstain from talking about the thoughts and course of the government beyond negotiation.

10 days after the publication of the Blue Book, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs made an addition to it. It already clearly stated that Japan claims to Kunashir, Shikotan, Iturup and the Habomai archipelago. This satisfied the Japanese nationalists, who demand "tougher demands on Russia." At the same time, the radicals note that the Japanese Foreign Ministry "may again remove from the Blue Book a reference to the number of islands."

          Your Grandfather would see these islands now ... No, better not to see. There is definitely nothing to watch there. There are islands with beautiful nature and rich resources, but traces of Russian civilization are not visible.
          Was on Shikotan. Beautiful island. The bay is convenient for the port ... but there is no such port. It was the largest fish processing plant, and now there are only ruins.
          I was in Kunashir. SK is a classic village of the Russian outback of the middle lane. Neither normal roads, nor houses. Products at exorbitant prices.
          And what hot natural springs are there! Natural outdoor baths with eternally hot healing water ... Such a resort should be there!
          Why am I? After all, the Japanese see how we "manage" the islands. Iturup, Urup, Simushir are huge islands, and there bears walk around, and 30 border guards. Why is Russia not developing the enormous potential of these islands? Each should have an airfield, a port, a modern village, a fish factory, and border fortifications.
          If Japan saw that the Russian islands were completely populated and used to their full potential, then their claims would end there.
          The Kuril Islands are ours! But for some reason, they are remembered only when Japan raises a question.

              And how not to remember against the background of this activity of Stolypin the attempts of the current government with its "Far Eastern hectare".

              What is it, by the way? Who is in the know, from the Far East, or who are involved in the implementation of this state program?

                Take it, please. Only now, there are problems with communications and roads to this hectare. This land, in a strange way, may be on the slope of a hill or 70 km away. from the nearest town, or some other "surprise". And the most important thing is that a hectare is initially flawed. For an ordinary family, a lot (you can't handle it with your hands, the equipment is expensive), but not enough for a farmer. And what start-up capital is needed now to develop this "hectare" from scratch? Having SUCH funds available, it's easier to start a business in the city ...

                And what a hectare ... They stand untouched if it is a former forest. The transfer of land only through a court, for whom the former agricultural land is normal and is being built and plowed, and generally good.
                I have a "forest", I did not go to court, I made a development project, so they immediately unsubscribed me, it is impossible, FOREST.
                So I collect mushrooms and berries, they are on my hectare, well, those who don’t have it either recourse

            Despite all the perverse tricks of the new history of Russia, common sense will prevail. Let not in our lifetime, our life is nothing in the history of Russia. And then the Kuril Islands will blossom together with the country. All the conditions for this are, it is only necessary not to interfere.

            We have one-seventh of sushi under control. There are only 150 million of us. Sometimes our entire "internal territorial policy" resembles the work of a forester in a huge national park. And tourists each time poke into an unclean spring, a crumbling path, a rickety bridge. But seriously, hands will reach everything. And it is right that the Japanese climb. We will redevelop the Kuril Islands faster, better quality and stronger.

      Even the latest amendments to the Constitution are not a guarantee that the power post in our country will not be occupied by any Kh., G. or B. and from the "master's" shoulder will not start distributing land for the sake of 30 pieces of silver, a handful of beads or the "oath" of the donee in eternal love for Russia.
      It was necessary to be so m ----- m as to promise the land conquered by the blood and sweat of your warriors to the defeated enemy in the rank of the Winner. And for more than 50 years, the point has not been put, and the "dancing" of our high-ranking officials around this issue only fuel the appetite of both the defeated enemy in the east and numerous enemies in the west. It turns out that we have driven ourselves into a corner, instead of solving the issue once and for all.

        It should be understood that the adoption of the constitution also does not guarantee the life and freedom of the tsars, who choose to distribute Russian lands to foreigners ... Enraged by the betrayal of their interests, the people will simply destroy them, and with the laws adopted by the enemies of the people, they’ll go off the bat ...

    Well, well, decide, maybe when you decide it’s easier. It was necessary to determine correctly when they decided to enter the axis of Berlin-Rome-Tokyo. Today, the defeated country makes territorial claims, the countries-accomplices of the Nazis carefully whitewash themselves by putting the blame for 2 MB on the USSR - a complete madhouse.
