No change in Japan’s stance on peace treaty with Russia, will continue its sanctions policy

Tokyo. Japan’s Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa said on Thursday that there was no change in her country’s stance on the Kuril Islands (Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai) to resolve the territorial dispute and sign a peace treaty with Russia. Is. Kamikawa said at the press conference that as far as the northern region is concerned, we firmly stick to the direction of resolving the regional issue and concluding a peace treaty.

He also said that Japan will continue its sanctions policy against Russia, but it will be in line with the country’s national interests. “Our country, in cooperation with the international community, primarily the G7, has adopted tough sanctions against Russia and intends to continue to impose them in the future,” he said. Also, Japan and Russia are neighboring countries.

“With regard to issues where Japan and Russia’s neighborly cooperation would be necessary, for example, in economic activities such as fishing, maritime security, we will act in accordance with our national interests as part of our foreign policy.” He said that one of the priority directions in Japan’s relations with Russia would be to resume visits to the ancestral graves of former residents of the Russian-administered Kunashir, Iturup, Shikotan and Habomai islands.
