TOKYO MULLS TERRITORIAL ISSUE.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 119
Government sources in Tokyo indicated on June 13 that Japanese prime minister Ryutaro Hashimoto intends to discuss the Kuril Islands territorial dispute with Boris Yeltsin during a bilateral meeting on the eve of the June 20-22 G-7 summit, but that he has not decided whether to raise the issue officially during the summit itself. That decision, sources said, will depend on the outcome of the bilateral meeting. The Foreign Ministry reportedly opposes raising the issue at the summit. (Kyodo, June 13)
