The Japanese Foreign Ministry has become more cautious about Kuril Islands issue after Russia’s refusal to transfer its two islands to Tokyo. And, despite its unacceptable actions at the G-20 summit (in its presentation, Japan noted the Russian Kuril Islands as its territories), Prime Minister S. Abe now declares his desire to «make peace» with Russia before the end of his term (until 2021). However, the position of Tokyo for Moscow is the opposite. Why? Because Tokyo requires first to give the islands to Japan, and only after that a peace treaty between the two countries will be signed. This is ridiculous!
