Russo-Japanese joint photo project named Our Kuriles was overturned by the Foreign Ministry of Japan
Russo-Japanese joint photo project named Our Kuriles, that was announced at the beginning of this summer, was overturned by the Foreign Ministry of Japan. The organizers initially planned to hold a joint photo session on the Kurile Islands in August. Then the Russian and Japanese photographers were expected to show their works in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which is the capital of Russia's Far-Eastern Sakhalin region, Moscow and Tokyo. But the Japanese Foreign Ministry didn’t allow its citizens to fly to the Kuriles with Russian visas, said Tatiana Polishchuk, a spokeswoman for the committee on international, foreign economic and interregional contacts of the Sakhalin region. That is why only Russian photographers' works will be exhibited in Moscow in November and later in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. Japan and Russia has been disputing these territories, known as the Northern Territories in Japan and the Southern Kuriles in Russia, since the end of the World War II, when Russians allegedly seized the islands. Japan waived all the rights, title and claim to this territory in the 1951 San Francisco peace treaty, which it signed with the U.S. and other allies.
