Japan agreed to the island of Shikotan and group of Islands Habomai

According to the publication Kyodo, named Islands should be placed under Japanese jurisdiction de facto. The transfer of the remaining Islands of Iturup and Kunashir, at this stage it looks “unrealistic”.

The source explained to the publication that the requirement of Tokyo for the rest of the Islands can make to a standstill for an indefinite period the whole negotiation process. The Japanese authorities believe that the reasons for the transfer of these Islands is enshrined in the Soviet-Japanese Joint Declaration of 1956.
