JCP Shii criticizes Medvedev’s visit to Kunashiri

November 2, 2010
Japanese Communist Party Chair Shii Kazuo on November 1 published a comment in protest against the visit to Kunashiri Island, one of the Chishima Islands (Kuril) which have been historically Japan territory, by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Earlier on that day, Medvedev visited the island for the first time as the Russian leader. Russia has occupied the Chishima Islands though they were Japan’s legitimate territories.

JCP Chair Shii Kazuo at a news conference criticized Medvedev’s trip to the island for showing intention to perpetuate the Russian occupation of the islands.
