Japanese Foreign Ministry outraged by the presence of the head of the Ministry of Emergencies in the Kuril Islands


After the opening of the emergency rescue center of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in Kunashir, the Japanese Foreign Ministry sent a presentation to the head of the Emergencies Ministry of Russia Yevgeny Zinchev. The Russian Embassy in Japan has already reacted to this statement.

As reported by the press service of the embassy on its page in Facebook, the opening of the EMERCOM center took place on August 5. According to the position of the embassy, ​​Russia's sovereignty over the southern Kuriles is beyond question. Therefore, it has the right to carry out any actions on its territory. The same applies to officials. In this regard, the statement of the Japanese Foreign Ministry was called categorically unacceptable at the embassy.

In June, Japan made a submission to Russia because of the geological exploration work in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, including in the Kuril region. General Secretary of the Japanese government, Yoshihide Suga, said that this does not coincide with Japan's position on the four northern islands.

In February, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono said that a peace treaty would be signed only if Russian payments of material compensation. Sergey Lavrov replied that Russia does not intend to agree to a peace treaty on the terms of Japan or in exchange for investment.
