Kozuki was notified that in Moscow they paid attention to the statements of the Japanese leadership on a peace treaty with Russia. In particular, we are talking about the fact that the inhabitants of the southern Kuriles must “with understanding understand the transition of the territorial affiliation of the islands to Japan.” The concern of the Russian side is also caused by statements about “refusing to demand compensation from Russia in favor of Japan and former Japanese residents for the post-war occupation of the islands,” the Foreign Ministry said.

The representative of Tokyo was told that such statements are misleading the societies of both countries and distort the essence of the agreements reached by the leaders of Russia and Japan on the basis of the 1956 Joint Declaration. In addition, such statements by the Japanese side can be interpreted as forcing the atmosphere around the conclusion of a peace treaty and an attempt to impose on Russia their own scenario of resolving the problem.
