PETROPAVLOVSK KAMCHATSKY, July 5 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said he “is absolutely indifferent” to Japan’s reaction to his trip to the Kurile Islands.
“As for the reaction of our Japanese partners, I’m absolutely indifferent,” Medvedev told journalists on Thursday.
“I’m too indifferent as I don’t want to spend the time to answer this question because for what reason is to discuss the Russian prime minister’s presence on the Russian territory,” he said.
“We can go too far,” Medvedev stressed.
In his words, officials and journalists should arrive in the Kurile Islands. “It happened that not all could visit the Kurile Islands. I pledged that everyone who wishes can arrive next time,” the prime minister said.
“These are very interesting places. I believe that everyone – the leadership of the state, the government members and journalists – should travel there,” he explained.
Medvedev called for riveting more attention to the Kurile Islands and especially to the Far East.
