"Relations between Russia and Japan pose a very serious problem. Japan has territorial disputes with not only Russia but also China and Korea. The worsening of Japanese-Chinese relations may negatively tell on the Russian interests", the politologist said.
In his opinion, the problem is that a generation seeking revival of the former imperial ambitions is coming to power in Japan.
"The worsening of Japanese-Chinese relations may result in attempts of certain forces to try use the present situation for revising the constitution of Japan with subsequent conduct of a tough use-of-force policy", Sergei Rogov believes.
"This will negatively tell on the Russian interests", he is convinced.
