Lawmaker apologizes for comment on Northern Territories

All national papers reported that Japan Innovation Party politician Hodaka Maruyama of Osaka has been heavily criticized for reportedly saying Japan may have to wage war to recapture the Russian-controlled Northern Territories when he recently accompanied former residents on a visit to one of the islands on a “visa-free” exchange program. The Diet member, who was reportedly intoxicated when he made the remark, apologized yesterday for speaking inappropriately.
