Japan interested in Sakartvelo’s problems2011-02-17 17:45
According to representatives of the interim parliamentary commission on Georgia's "territorial integrity" reconstruction Shota Malashkhia, Japanese parliament may consider the issue of the "occupation" of Sakartvelo territories, GHN reports.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"It concerns the adoption of the same resolutions on the "occupation" that were adopted by some European countries and that the USA are planning to adopt as well", - he underlined, having added that on its part, Tbilisi is ready to consider the issue of RF's alleged occupation of the Japanese islands.
As is known, Japan claims four islands in the southern part of the Kuril Islands - Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai, referring to a bilateral Treaty on Trade and Borders signed in 1855. Moscow's position is that the Southern Kuril Islands were affiliated with the USSR (with Russia becoming its legal successor) after the Second World War and the Russian sovereignty over them is not subject to any doubt, being documented in a relevant international legal way.
Russia recognized the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia on 26 August 2008. This was preceded by the bringing of the Georgian troops into South Ossetia on August 8. After the Georgian aggression, the capital of the republic, Tskhinval, was almost totally destroyed; over 200 common citizens and peacekeepers died. In response, Russia held an operation on forcing Georgia to peace and protecting Russian citizens.
