“We refer you to the statement of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, in which they make it clear that the map on their website is a topographic map of the area. The IOC will continue to discuss this topic with the organizing committee, ”the TASS press service quotes.
On the website of the Olympic Games 2020, the Russian islands of Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and a group of Habomai islands were marked as the territory of Japan. Japan claims the four islands of the South Kuril Islands, citing a bilateral treaty on trade and borders of 1855.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, estimated the designation of the Kuril Islands on the OI-2020 map by Japan.
