Japan elected new prime minister

In Japan, a new prime minister has been elected to replace the resigned Shinzo Abe. According to the Japanese media, the new chairman of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in Japan, Yoshihide Suga, has become the head of the cabinet.


For the election of Suga to the post of prime minister, the majority of the deputies of the lower house of parliament voted, which has the decisive word in the election of the head of government, earlier he received the majority of votes in the upper house.

In the coming hours, Suga will announce the composition of the new Japanese government. Ministers in the Abe government are expected to retain most of the posts with minor changes.

Yoshihide Suga on Monday at the congress of the Liberal Democratic Party was elected by an absolute majority as chairman of the party. He will hold this post until the end of September 2021, when the term of office of the resigned Abe expires, after which re-elections will take place for the standard three-year term.

The Japanese Foreign Ministry commented on the election of Yoshihide Suga as new prime minister against the background of the problems of concluding a peace treaty with Russia. According to the Foreign Ministry spokesman, the new government is committed to developing relations with the Russian Federation in various fields, including the conclusion of a peace treaty.

We refrain from making forecasts, but the Japanese government, based on national interests, intends to develop Japanese-Russian relations in broad spheres of politics, including the issue of concluding a peace treaty, as well as the economy and culture.

        Yes, all about the same! Promises to return the lost territories to Japan, which lost to the USSR / Russia in WWII.

        For example. Military affairs on July 26, 2019 reported that during a press conference in Tokyo, the Secretary General of the Japanese government, Yoshihide Suga, said that Japan had sent Russia a protest presentation in connection with the exploration work in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk and off the islands of the Kuril archipelago. We are talking about the islands of Iturup, Shikotan, Kunashir and Habomai.
        The Russian side notified Tokyo in advance of the geological work carried out near Sakhalin, the Kuriles and Kamchatka.
        «This does not coincide with our country's position on the four northern islands and cannot be accepted. The solution to the issue of the northern territories is very important, the government still intends to continue negotiations with Russia on the basis of the basic position on solving the territorial problem and concluding a peace treaty ",
        - said Yoshihide Suga.

    The Japanese Foreign Ministry commented on the election of Yoshihide Suga as new prime minister against the background of the problems of concluding a peace treaty with Russia.

    The Foreign Ministry is certainly good. But when Prime Minister Yoshihide begins to give his comments about relations with Russia and the Kuril Islands, then it will be more interesting!

      Yes, it seems already
      “With regard to the issue of the Northern Territories (as Tokyo calls the Kuril Islands, which are part of the Russian Federation. - Gazeta.Ru), I intend to continue the dialogue [with Russia] in order to clarify the issue of the ownership of the four islands,” the NHK channel quoted Yoshihide Suga as saying.

        - said Yoshihide Suga.
        This is before the premiership.
        But in Japan, you cannot become prime minister without mentioning the "northern territories".

    Doesn't threaten to use nuclear weapons to return Northern territories? Didn't he swear to return them at his father's grave?

    Did not this party and Suga personally sound bellicose statements (up to the use of the Armed Forces) about the Kuriles? The political circle has once again closed - start the song about the "northern territories" from the beginning.

    And don't look for problems where they don't exist.
    We, for example, have no territorial claims against Japan. We have complete clarity with the Southern Kuriles.

      Dear Alexander, I personally have one. As one born in Kunashir, I would like to have insurance against all sorts of different, in the form of a buffer = Hokkaido =, zones of joint economic activity of the Russian Federation and Japan. Moreover, we have the right to make such a claim.
      Unfortunately, our MFA officials too often express the wrong emotions. They were categorically not born in the Kuril Islands. Most likely in Moscow-bad ...
      And what can I say, we will only be 3-4 thousand.
