TOKYO, April 8. /TASS/. Three Japanese nationals were trying to get inside the Russian embassy in central Tokyo early on Friday, the diplomatic mission’s press service told TASS.
"Early in the morning, three Japanese nationals were trying to get inside the embassy’s territory through the main gate," the press service said. "They claimed to be from Switzerland - a father with two daughters of between 15 and 20 years of age."
"They mentioned political persecution they are suffering in Japan ‘because of their anti-American position’ and thus said they wanted to address the embassy regarding political asylum."
The Russian embassy spoke about "rather aggressive behavior of those people" and said the embassy had asked the local law enforcers for assistance in settlement of the situation.
"We also made a similar address during a conversation this morning between the embassy’s minister counsellor and Japan’s head of the Europe Department at the Foreign Ministry."
At the same time, the Russian embassy said the request for political asylum would be "considered in due course," and the Japanese nationals would be informed about the results.
