Russia and Japan resume discussion of the peace treaty

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after negotiations with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kisida about the decision to restart the dialogue on a peace treaty with the participation of deputy heads of foreign ministries of both countries, expressing hope that the resumption of direct contact will help the parties to correct the difficult situation in the bilateral dialogue.

“I want to once again confirm the focus of Russia on the development of the whole complex of Russian-Japanese relations, on solving both the problems that remain in them and the new problems, which are artificial in many respects,” RIA says Lavrova "News".

The Russian Foreign Minister stressed that during the negotiations it was possible to confirm the understanding that bilateral cooperation is beneficial to the long-term interests of the peoples of Japan and the Russian Federation.

“We in Russia proceed from the assumption that bilateral cooperation should be self-sufficient in nature and not depend on the fluctuations of the international political environment. We are interested in stepping up efforts to correct the negative trends in the trade and economic sphere. In addition to the meeting of the intergovernmental commission, which will be held in the near future, several other events will contribute to this. In particular, a regular meeting of the Russian-Japanese Advisory Council on the modernization of the economy is scheduled for the beginning of October in Tokyo, ”said the Russian minister.

The main topic of negotiations between the ministers of Japan and the Russian Federation was the conclusion of a peace treaty, in particular, 8 of October should pass the second round of consultations on this topic at the level of deputy foreign ministers.

In turn, Kisida said that his visit to the Russian Federation "actually marked the resumption of the stopped talks on the conclusion of a peace treaty."

"The parties confirmed the further continuation of the direct dialogue between the heads of state and foreign ministers through the active use of international conferences and other events," said the Japanese foreign minister.

      First, let them sign a peace treaty recognizing the results of the Second World War, and then bazaars about the Kuril Islands. laughing Let them rejoice that Hokkaido remained with them.

        th, and then the bazaars of the Kuril Islands.

        But what about the bazaars about them, the Japanese want to the Kuril Islands, let them come as tourists.

        Ahhhhhhh !!!!!!!! it's all because of the Chinese.
        You eat dogs, we have been living with us for a long time without a peace treaty, constantly (not demanding, no) asking for the Kuril Islands. And against the background of a possible confrontation with the PRC, the Japanese do not want to have a neighbor without a peace treaty.

          Of course, because of the Chinese, but Japanese logic is difficult to understand. First, Japan, looking at the Americans in the mouth, announces sanctions to us, which is little to say unfriendly, and then tries to sign a "Peace Treaty". It is not logical.

          Something generally ceased to understand the logic of Japanese diplomacy. How can a visit of the President of the Russian Federation to a country that believes that it is still at war with the Russian Federation take place? Unless to take hostages until he signs a contract, but this is nonsense of course.
          Obviously, according to the Japanese, it is logical to first drop a couple of nuclear bombs on their country, and only then sit down to sign the agreement.

        Guys, when will you learn to combine sour with finances or sweets with iron? The second visit of Netanyahu to Moscow in September, and one secret, I did not find anything in the press about the second. The Israeli leader often went to Moscow. Moscow conducts operations in Syria without looking back at the USA Saudi princes also visited Moscow often. Do you think the Japanese do not see this? They see well. Japan depends on the resources of other countries. And now the rapprochement between Russia and China is straining Japan. Why? Energy resources; after the visits of the Arab sheikhs, we can expect a sharp increase in energy prices, albeit hypothetical .inkfss_98 suggests bringing about a solid mining. Why do your vessels do more harm. It’s much more efficient to simply close these areas for fishing. Under certain agreements with China, you can limit or stop selling rare earth metals. This is a blow to many industries. Now, Peter Hambra said that there is no physical gold on the market, Russia and China are buying it. Say they say we have derivatives in exels and other miscellaneous items. So, due to the lack of physical gold, many industries and primarily electronic ones can become one. Every year, up to 2 tons of gold is spent on the production of electronic components. Now explain how paper can replace gold in contacts. And the Japanese are alarmed that it is possible to get such a blow to industry without sanctions. that the islands are not worth it. And it’s better for the Japanese to visit Romanes as tourists on the islands. That’s why it’s better to live peacefully with Russia. And to start a confrontation is more expensive for yourself.

      Do not forget that this year by the decision of the United Nations, the Sea of ​​Okhotsk was recognized as the inland sea of ​​Russia. So we’ll definitely not give up any islands, otherwise this decision will be called into question.

        In fairness, Japan is the only country except the Russian Federation that has access to the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, regardless of the Kuril Islands.

    At one time I was shocked by the realization of the fact that the valiant Japanese samurai are satellites of the Yankos. And after this "discovery" all the claims of the Japs to revise the post-war territorial changes seem to me an artificial destabilizer of friendly relations between the two countries in the interests of a third party. And I'm not talking about China. Joke.

    If only the islands are not merged.

    Here is how the Japanese might hint that we have time to join the territories and with clues that they’ll attach somehow more carefully because the peace treaty has not been signed and there is no need to hold a referendum in Crimea. Especially the islands who know whose they were, when they were there, and who wants what, there will be one with a poster demanding accession to Russia, and it’s time for us to help bring democracy to the precedent))).

    Consider and think about the islands "go for a week". But first, the complete withdrawal of the occupying troops and military bases from the territory of the contracting party. Otherwise, one of the most peaceful countries with a peacemaker president will stick a radar with an anti-missile missile there.

    Yes, for God's sake, it's high time - Japan recognizes the sovereignty of Russia over the Kuril Islands, Russia agrees to provide Japan with the opportunity to carry out free trade in this region, as well as rent limited plots of land on these islands, allowing Japanese ships to carry limited fishing in this area, we agree on joint patrolling. Minus Japanese poachers, plus legal consolidation of Russia's sovereignty over this territory, plus the creation of a simplified movement of capital in this zone, plus long-term partnership in the region.

    Any negotiations with the Japanese about territories, in international practice, mean the fact that Russia itself is not confident in the sovereignty over the Kuril Islands.

    No self-respecting country ever discusses the territorial claims of another. It’s the same as the Minister of Argentina will go to England to demand Fokland.
    ... Koreans, for example, in general, simply send the Japanese away and do not communicate with them at all if the issue of the Dokdo Islands is raised on their agenda.
    But Lavrov, in fact, through these negotiations shows that Moscow also believes that these islands are controversial. All this can be used after the capture of the islands at the UN.

      despite the fact that "no self-respecting country ever discusses the territorial claims of another" in international practice, such territories always remain unhealed purulent wounds on the body of the country, which periodically worsen. Don't you think that such a practice is vicious, since it does not lead to constructive ways of resolving such contradictions? request

When Stalin was going to conclude a peace treaty with Japan and was even ready to transfer two islands, he planned that in response, Japan would not place US bases on its territory !!! in the end everything turned out the other way around !!! so what kind of "Northern Territories" they did not want!
