Japan rants against Russian military drills on disputed Kuril island. Russia ignores info
hahaha Of course there was 'no avail'. Japan is nothing. Russia doesn't give a damn what they have to say LMAO
Japan is concerned by the holding of Russia's Vostok-2010 military drills on Iturup Island, the largest of the disputed South Kuril Islands, Japan's Kyodo news agency said. |
"This is extremely regretful. As far as we know, there have never been such drills there," Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada told reporters late on Tuesday.
The Russian Armed Forces started large-scale Vostok-2010 military exercises in Siberia and the country's Far East on June 29. The drills, which involve at least 20,000 troops, up to 70 warplanes and 30 warships, will continue through Thursday.
Okada said that Japan had earlier told Russia about its objections to the drills, but to no avail.
Japanese want Kurils? Let them try to take them from us. Let them try.
