GOJ protests ceremony in Northern Territories

Yomiuri and Nikkei reported on the disclosure by Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga yesterday that the GOJ has filed a protest with the Russian government over a ceremony that was held on Etorofu Island on Sunday to commemorate Russia’s victory over Japan in WWII.


In a related development, Yomiuri wrote that the Russian armed forces informed residents on Kunashiri that military exercises would be held on the island starting Tuesday. The paper projected that the drills could affect a planned summit between President Putin and Prime Minister Abe on the margins of an international economic forum to be held in Vladivostok next week.
