In Japan, territorial issues have received increased attention since last year. The Senkaku issue caused tension in Japan-China relations, and the Takeshima issue lies between Japan and the ROK. In the northern territories issue, Mr. Yoshiro Mori, former Prime Minister, visited Russia in February as a virtual special envoy of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to talk with President Vladimir Putin. Some Japanese media report that Mr. Abe will travel to Russia for a summit meeting during the Golden Week holidays, referring to the possibility for a solution of the territorial issue and the development of Japan-Russia relations. 


FPCJ has invited Dr. Kazuhiko Togo, who has worked at the MOFA as Director-General for the Treaties Bureau and the European Affairs Bureau, to talk about territorial issues in North East Asia.


Date & Time: March 27 (Wed), 2013, 14:00-15:00 (Rescheduled from March 25.)


Place: Foreign Press Center/Japan (6th floor, Nippon Press Center Bldg.)


Language: English only


Embassy representatives and FPCJ supporting members may also attend the briefing as observers (admission free).
