The Territorial Dispute in Russo-Japanese Relations – Past and Future 

Martin Milchev Dimitrov, Faculty of History, SU “St. Kliment Ohridski”

Abstract

The report offers a brief overview of the history of the territorial dispute between Russia and Japan from the establishment of relations in the 19th century, through the Soviet era and the Cold War, to the present day tenures of President Putin and Prime minister Abe, respectively.

Outlined in the second part are a few factors which influence the trends toward possible resolution, or failure to resolve, the territorial dispute. The report concludes that given the current state of affairs, full normalization of relations between the two countries is highly unlikely in the foreseeable future.
