IN BRIEF - Russia refuses to hold annual fishery talks with Japan

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

NHK has learned that Russia has notified Japan that it cannot hold annual talks this year aimed at ensuring the safety of Japanese fishing vessels when they operate near the four islands.

Russia controls four islands, Japan claims its rights to them. The Japanese government claims that these islands were illegally occupied after World War II.

The Japanese Embassy in Moscow said it received a unilateral notification from the Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday.

Such annual negotiations are based on an agreement between the governments of the two countries, concluded in 1998. It protects fishery workers operating near these islands from being detained by the Russian authorities.

Official representatives of the Japanese embassy called Russia's step deplorable. They also said they would urge Moscow to start negotiations soon to allow fishing vessels to start fishing operations as quickly as possible this season.
