We introduce the notion of (Weak) Corestriction Principle and prove some relations between the validity of this principle for various connecting maps in non-abelian Galois cohomology over fields of characteristic 0. We also prove the validity of Weak Corestriction Principle for images of coboundary maps $H^1(k,G) \to H^2(k,T)$, where $T$ is a finite commutative $k$-group of multiplicative type, $G$ is adjoint, semisimple and contains only almost simple factors of certain inner types.
