Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov arrived in Tokyo, where negotiations began in the "two plus two" format - the foreign and defense ministers of the two countries. Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Shoigu and their Japanese counterparts Taro Kono and Takeshi Iwaya will hold traditional consultations on security issues in the region.
For the first time, such a joint meeting of two Russian and two Japanese ministers took place back in 2013, but then the format stalled for several years until it received a new impetus after the official visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Tokyo in December 2016. Since then, consultations have been alternately held in each of the capitals, so the current Tokyo round is already the fourth.

In general, Russian-Japanese top-level and high-level contacts can hardly be called low-intensity. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe came to our country on an official visit last spring and with a worker in January. Not to mention the fact that leaders do not miss the opportunity to communicate on the margins of international forums. Sergey Lavrov received his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono on 10 May in Moscow. A dialogue is also developing through the military.

At the same time, the positions of Moscow and Tokyo on issues of principle cannot be brought together yet. For example, the Japanese call their strategic alliance with Washington the basis of the security architecture in the Asia-Pacific region, while Moscow, by contrast, is concerned about the deployment of elements of the US global missile defense system and, in general, the build-up of the US military presence in Japan. As noted on the eve of the country's largest English-language newspaper The Japan News (released by Yomiuri Shimbun), commenting on the recent visit to Japan of Donald Trump, who was received here with great honors, he became the first US president to board the ship of the Japanese naval self-defense forces - Kaga helicopter carrier based at Yokosuka. In the near future it will be converted into a light aircraft carrier and will take the newest American F-35 fighter jets. "American deterrence is vital to Japan’s security. It was extremely important to demonstrate the unity of the alliance both within and outside the country," writes the publication. "In order to strengthen protection against ballistic missiles, the government will deploy Aegis Ashore ground-based interception complexes in the prefectures Akita and Yamaguchi ... The total cost of installing and maintaining the American systems will be more than 400 billion yen over 30 years. Negotiations on the audit of the costs of military installations US s in Japan will begin in full force next year. "
"We have to bear in mind that today there is a security treaty between Japan and the United States. We again paid attention to a number of actions by Washington, including the deployment of elements of the global missile defense systems on Japanese territory, increasing its military presence in the region, and generally the disarmament sphere. The United States destroys all existing agreements. We see in these actions a threat to our country, "said Sergey Lavrov after talks with Kono in Moscow.

Then the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry also acknowledged that significant differences remain in the approaches to the conclusion of a peace treaty, designed to bring the relations of the Russian Federation and Japan to a qualitatively new level. The parties agreed that the Soviet-Japanese Joint Declaration of 1956 should be its basis, but interpret it differently. Moscow recalls that, in accordance with the document, Japan recognizes the outcome of the Second World War, that is, a peace treaty, in fact, is concluded without preliminary conditions. Meanwhile, Tokyo believes that the settlement of the "territorial dispute", the existence of which the Russian Federation does not recognize in principle, should be a priority.
A separate topic is the joint economic activity in the Kuril Islands. When it comes to high-tech projects, the American side expresses extreme displeasure with the possible cooperation of the Japanese and Russians, which they cannot ignore in Tokyo.

On Friday, Lavrov and Kono will hold separate talks at which they will discuss, including the upcoming G20 summit in Osaka in June. It is expected that the contact between Vladimir Putin and Shinzo Abe will again take place on his fields.
