Japan, Russia discuss joint economic activities in Northern Territories

Nikkei, Mainichi, and Sankei wrote that Japan and Russia held a meeting of senior diplomats in Tokyo on Monday to discuss joint economic activities in the Northern Territories. Senior Deputy Foreign Minister Mori and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Morgulov participated in the meeting. The papers wrote that the two nations agreed to launch new working-level talks to discuss the details of joint economic activities on the four islands. Nikkei wrote that although the Russian side proposed visa-free travel between Hokkaido and Sakhalin, it would be difficult for Japan to accept the idea out of concern that the arrangement could lead to Japanese recognition of Russia’s claim over the four islands.
