Japan and Russia to share the Kuril Islands?

The Head of the Japanese Ministry of foreign affairs Taro Aso has suggested that Russia presents half of the Kuril archipelago to Japan. The Japanese side deems that the state borderline between Russia and Japan can cross Iturup Island. In this case the territory given to Japan will consist of 25% of Iturup Island and three other islands.
      The leading Japanese newspapers took the statement of Taro Aso as a suggestion to share the territory of the Kuril Islands half-and-half. However, many Japanese analytics doubt that the government of Japan will agree to leave 75% of Iturup Island under the sovereignty of Russia.
