The Russian side is withdrawing from the dialogue with Japan on establishing joint economic activities in these islands, the ministry said in a statement.

Russia will block the extension of Japan’s status as a sectoral dialogue partner of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, it added.
