The Kurillian Knot
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the territorial limit due to force. The nature of the Russo-Japanese War's conclusion resulted in Japanese strategic planners believing it possible for peace to be concluded when the tide of a war was most favorable. After the Russo-Japanese War, Japan extended its effect in the Far East beyond what they considered necessary. There were efforts to eliminate territorial conflict. The Cairo Declaration was an expression by Great Britain, the United States, and China of intent to use a policy when making a peace treaty with a defeated Japan. The Soviet Union would always quote the Yalta Agreement as the legal basis for its possession of the Northern Territories. It cited the Yalta Agreement to attempt to justify its sovereignty over the four islands. Between 1946 and 1948, the Soviet authorities issued decrees unilaterally integrating Southern Sakhalin and the Kuriles into the Soviet Union.
