[Voice of Hope, March 17, 2022](Reported by Voice of Hope reporter Lan Shan)Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has been using increasingly tough words for the four northern islands that have sovereignty disputes between Japan and Russia.

According to comprehensive media information, on the morning of March 17, Fumio Kishida made it clear that the “four northern islands” were “illegally occupied” by Russia when answering a question from the Senate Budget Committee. The last time the term “illegal occupation” was publicly used was in 2009 by then Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso.

Earlier on March 7, Fumio Kishida had stated that the “four northern islands” were “inherently Japanese territory”, which aroused heated discussions at that time.

According to Japanese media reports, in order to promote the signing of a peace treaty with Russia, Japan has never used sensitive expressions such as “Japan’s inherent territory” and “illegal occupation”. However, since Russia invaded Ukraine, Fumio Kishida’s position has changed significantly.
