Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to a disputed islet in the Kuril Islands on Monday was "very regrettable".

"As Japan has kept its position that the four Northern Islands belong to the Japanese territory, the president's visit there is very regrettable," Kan told the parliament, referring to Medvedev's arrival at one of the islands called Kunashiri in Japan Monday.
