Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova condemned Japan for marking the Kuril Islands as its territory in a Tokyo Olympics 2020 map, speaking during her weekly press briefing in Solnechnogorsk on Friday.
The spokesperson stated that the map which shows the Southern Kuril Islands as part of the Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido on the Tokyo Olympics’ official website is illegal and... Еще “poisons” the relations between the two countries.
Zakharova also said that Moscow is carefully following the developments in Kyrgyzstan, following the unrest in the country amid the arrest of ex-President Almazbek Atambayev.
Commenting on Chinese statements that the US is meddling behind the scenes to instigate unrest in Hong Kong, the spokesperson stated that Moscow and Beijing should share information between its security agencies.
“I think that it would be quite useful and right to exchange data between the relevant secret services,” concluded Zakharova.
