Japan reacts sharply to Russia’s suspension of peace treaty talks

All national dailies reported extensively on Japan’s reaction to the Russian foreign ministry’s announcement on Monday that it will suspend peace treaty talks with Japan. Prime Minister Kishida said at a Diet committee session on Tuesday that Russia’s action is extremely unreasonable and totally unacceptable because the sole cause of the current situation is Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Vice Foreign Minister Mori summoned Russian Ambassador to Japan Galuzin to protest Russia’s announcement. The papers wrote that Moscow’s suspension of the talks has made the return of the Northern Territories to Japan even more difficult.
