Recently, Japan has once again laid bare its chronic and deep-rooted ambition for territorial expansion to seize other’s land, much to the consternation of the international society.
A few days ago, the Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan stated in a press conference that he demands Russia to exclude southern Kuril Islands from its areas of military exercise.
Prior to this, the Japanese Ministry of Defense, in its “White Paper on Defense”, expressed serious concern over the fact that Russia is more actively conducting military moves in southern Kuril Islands and the Far East region even amid its invasion of Ukraine and is deploying coastal missile system and other latest military equipment in the area of Kuril Islands.
In this regard, the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that they make it clear to the Japanese government once again the obvious fact that southern Kuril Islands are an inseparable part of Russia and their sovereignty were legally affirmed according to the result of the World War II.
He scathingly derided the remarks of the Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary, saying that it is as same as hoping the sun rises in the west instead of the east, when it is considered that the current Kishida cabinet is being wedded to the solidarity with the U.S. and other countries in “western camp”.
Political and social personages of Russia are saying that they would not tolerate such act and that increase in deployment of military equipment on Kuril Islands is a due counteraction to the aggressive statements and acts of Tokyo.
And they are unanimously maintaining that it is unnecessary to make a peace agreement with Japan as it is not worth a farthing.
It serves the Japanese authorities right as they do not know where to draw the line.
Japan sticks to its unreasonable insistence that other’s land belongs to it and picks a quarrel with a sovereign state over its self-defensive military measures taken in its territory, claiming that it gave rise to the aggravated regional situation. This is political behavior peculiar to Japan.
Of late, Japan’s impudent wild ambition for territorial expansion is becoming more undisguised. This is bound to invite stronger counteraction from Russia.
Japan, a defeated country in the World War II, inflicted great misfortune and suffering on mankind. It should deeply reflect its gravest crimes against humanity and make an apology to the world people, and should not waste its efforts and time to wantonly violate the sovereignty of other countries.
