Reflections on contemporary developments in Russo-Japanese relations

12 mai 2017

Conference

The French Chamber is pleased to announce the next lunch seminar on Russo-Japanese relations held at the MFJ on Friday, May 12. 

Japan’s foreign policy towards Russia features two seemingly inconsistent strands.
On the one hand, as a member of the G-7, Tokyo maintains sanctions on Russia in response to its intervention in Ukraine. On the other hand, Prime Minister Abe is pursuing a “new approach” to Russia. This seeks to use closer economic ties as a catalyst for achieving a breakthrough in the countries’ longstanding territorial dispute. 

In this seminar, the reasons for these contradictory policies will be explained. It will also provide analysis of the most important recent developments, including President Putin’s visit to Japan in December 2016, the start of talks on joint economic activities on the disputed islands and resumption of the “2+2” discussions in March 2017, and Prime Minister Abe’s expected visit to Moscow in April 2017. The lecture will conclude by assessing the future prospects of the relationship, including the chances of a peace treaty finally being signed.
