Japan-Russia Air Space Row: Jets Scrambled
Japan says two Russian fighter jets briefly entered its skies above the northern island of Hokkaido, something Russia denies.

Russia has been holding military manoeuvres around the islands this week. However, it is no coincidence that the political dispute comes on what the Japanese call 'Northern Territories Day', when rallies are traditionally held calling for the return of disputed islands off Hokkaido.

The former Japanese Prime Minister Yoshiro Mori is expected to visit Moscow later this month to discuss territorial issues.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev landed on the remote island chain in July prompting protests in Tokyo.
