A peace treaty among Russia and Japan is only feasible after Tokyo turns down its partnership with the United States, claimed Russian Minister of foreign affairs, Sergey Lavrov. An ambassador of the Duma describes the posture of Moscow.
As Lavrov revealed within the framework of the G20 justices meeting in the town of Nagoya, the army collaboration of Japan and the USA “is an issue to Russian-Japanese relationships.”
Japan is going to continue discussions regarding the peace deal with Russia, Moscow has currently sent to Tokyo a checklist concerning safety and security priorities, “triggered by the presence, advancement and fortifying of the political-military connections of Japan and the United States of America,” Lavrov pointed out.
The vice-president of the Protection Council of Duma, Alexander Sherin, described to the Russian organization RiaFan “that a nation in which there are international soldiers based , can not be independent”.
” As a matter of fact, Japan is inhabited by US soldiers, and for that reason, can not behave individually … Japanese region these days is undoubtedly swamped with American troopers, that does not permit the nation’s leaders to perform policy independently, and this is exactly the reason that Tokyo, despite all its aspiration to acknowledge Russia’s sovereignty over the southerly Kuril Islands, is compelled to maintain the clash, this prevents us from establishing a peace accord among our countries, “mentioned Sherin.
Russia reveals a concern to Japan regarding the Peace Treaty
This individual strongly believes that Russia does not actually require a peace accord with Japan: “We should certainly not tyrannize Japan, asking it to offer us hope for a peace accord. And we will not do that. It is actually the Japanese that has an interest in endorsing this kind of a pact.”.
The Russian legislator included that the United States army group within Japan amounts to around 60,000 and 65,000 soldiers.
“Such is the occupation legions. In basic principle, this type of group enables it to seize a Country. By way of contrast, the group of federal government soldiers who attacked Grozni on the evening of December 31, 1994, to January 1, 1995, used 10,000 people.
That’s 6 times fewer! For that reason, I believe one can not count upon Japan as long as there are so many United States soldiers within your region, making a peace treaty impossible at this time.” Sherin ended.
