The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on Thursday, July 4, Moscow expresses Japan’s protest over the video to the G20 summit. In it, the Kuril Islands were Japanese territory designations. Note handed to the Japanese Ambassador on 2 July. About it reports “REN TV”, reports “Russian conversation”.

As you know, Japan went on a “clever trick” to “seize” the so-called in Japan the “Northern territories”.

Official web resource of the G20 summit in Osaka showed a video in which the four disputed Kuril Islands “belong” to Japan.

According to Zakharova, Japan took advantage of the status of the presidency of the G20 to advance unfounded claims to Russia. She recalled that these materials were contrary to the documents setting forth the results of the Second world war.

We will remind, the southern Islands of the greater Kuril ridge Islands, designated as a territory of Japan, can be seen in the beginning of the video.

In addition, there were known disagreements Tokyo and Moscow regarding the transaction for projects in the Kuril Islands. The parties fail to reach agreement at the upcoming summit of “Big twenty”.

As previously reported, Japan refused to conclude a peace Treaty with Russia regarding the Kuril Islands.
