   On July 3, local time, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website issued a statement explaining Russia’s position on the issue of the US-Japan “Oriental Shield” joint military exercise. The statement emphasized that Russia is paying close attention to the joint exercise between Japan and the United States. The Russian side has noticed that on June 29, Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi publicly stated in Hokkaido that the north direction is “critical” to Japan, and that there is only one neighbor to the north of Japan, namely Russia. The statement pointed out that, through the specific actions and remarks of its defense minister, the Japanese side demonstrated Japan’s actual military goals. The Russian side believes that Japan’s initiatives to ensure peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, including the concept of “opening up the Indo-Pacific”, are actually serving its narrow interests in its military alliance with the United States. The statement said that Japan has given up constructive dialogue with Russia on the reasonable security concerns of both sides, and will no longer discuss ways to build confidence in this area.
