Hodak of Maruyamacho: Rodrigo Reyes Marin / AFLO / Globallookpress.com
The lower house of the Japanese Parliament unanimously supported a resolution that condemns the Deputy Hodak Maruyama offering to return the southern Kuriles to Japan by military means, and require him to voluntarily resign and to refuse from the Deputy mandate, according to NHK.
Adopted by the legislature of the document has no binding force — Maruyama serves to make her own decisions about care. 20 may it was reported that he does not consider himself guilty of incitement to war and to hand over the mandate is not going to.
He believes that only hypothetically discussed the issue of the war for the disputed Islands, which does not violate the Japanese Constitution, which proclaims the renunciation of war as a means of solving international conflicts.
The controversial replica of the politician was made in mid-may, when he accompanied a group of former residents of the southern Kuril Islands in the trip to the island of Kunashir. During the dinner, he repeatedly tried to start a conversation about whether or not to consider war as a way of returning the territories. His interlocutors refused to speak with him on the subject, but he continued. It is reported that Maruyama was drunk.
Earlier it was reported that the Japanese foreign Ministry refused the phrase about the return of the Kuril Islands.
Tokyo does not recognize Russian sovereignty over the territory of the South Kuril Islands and insists on returning control of the Islands of Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai. Moscow has consistently reminded about the legality of Russian sovereignty over the Kuril Islands: they withdrew from the Soviet Union following the Second world war.
