During a public rally where the residents who used to live in the four islands captured by Russia in the war and their supports were present, Japanese premier said that it’s difficult but necessary to settle the existing conflict over “northern territories”. “It is not easy to resolve this task remaining over 73 years since the war. Yet, we need to tackle this. Keeping in mind your sentiments toward the Northern Territory, we are determined to take a step-by-step approach toward resolving the territorial issue”, Abe added.
