TOKYO, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— New Japanese Prime Minister Yeshihito Noda intends to build relation with Russia as with a partner in the Asia-Pacific region and simultaneously actively solve the issue of Southern Kuriles. He said this during his first programme speech in the parliament after his election to the post of prime minister on Tuesday.
“I will actively solve with Russia the problem of northern territories (thus Tokyo calls Southern Kuriles - - ITAR-TASS), the biggest unsolved issue between our countries, and simultaneously exert efforts to build relations with it which partners in the Asia-Pacific region need.”
This statement corresponds as a whole to the stance which was earlier voiced by former prime ministers. At the same time, an accent is made in the statement of 54-year-old Noda exactly on relations with Russia and Japan as partners in the region.
