Russian FM Warns Japanese Authorities
Moscow, January 16 (KCNA) -- The Foreign Ministry of Russia in a statement on Jan. 14 warned the Japanese authorities over the issue of Southern Kuriles.

That day the Japanese foreign minister "inspected" Southern Kuriles from the Japanese territorial waters aboard a warship of the Coast Guard Agency. If this was aimed at bringing into bold relief the stand of Japan unacceptable to Russia, it would not be helpful to improving the Russia-Japan relations, the statement warned.
