 Russias construction of four new military barracks on disputed islands or Japans discontent


According to reports, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced recently that two military barracks have been built on the South Kuril Islands and the South Kuril Islands, and that military families will be accommodated during Christmas. Russia opened two new military barracks last year and will build three more next year.

The Russian Army has also built modern weapons and armored vehicle storage facilities on the two islands, and intends to build more such facilities.

At the end of World War II in 1945, Russia actually controlled the four islands of the South Thousand Islands, namely, the South Thousand Islands, the Choice of Catches, the Tooth Dance and the Sedan Islands, but Japan claimed that these islands belonged to Japan. Now the two countries are negotiating a peace treaty, and the issue of islands is a key issue.

The Kremlin said earlier that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may visit Russia on January 21 next year to hold summit talks with Russian President Putin. Abe and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed in November to accelerate negotiations on the basis of the 1956 Japan-Soviet Joint Declaration, which states the transfer of Sedan and Tooth Dance Islands after the conclusion of the peace treaty.

However, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stressed on Monday that the Yugoslavia Islands became Russian territory as a result of World War II, and that if Japan did not recognize this, the negotiations would not progress. If Japans position remains unchanged, we will remain in a consistent state, Lavrov said in a radio interview with the Communist Youth League Truth Daily. Lavrov pointed out that this means that both sides should unconditionally recognize the outcome of World War II, but Japans position at this stage is that it is impossible to do so. As for the content of the Joint Declaration of Japan and the Soviet Union, Lavrov advocated that the transfer of the two islands is not a natural obligation. Negotiations are needed on when and in what form to hand over. Lavrov also expressed concern about Japans efforts to introduce the US land-based missile interception system, the Land-based Aegis System. He reiterated that the system could carry the U.S. cruise missile Tomahawk and pose a serious threat to Russia. Source: Liable Editor of CNN: Wang Lishan_NBJS7182
