Japan releases controversial document claiming South Korean islet as its own


Japan once again made territorial claims on
Korea’s easternmost Dokdo Island, …rekindling the two countries’ decades-long territorial
dispute. Tokyo’s Cabinet Secretariat website published
a report on Tuesday,… which contains various documents and news articles that support Japan’s
misguided claims. Dokdo was taken over by Japan as part of its
oppressive colonization of Korea. While the islets were rightfully restored
to Korea in the 1950s, Tokyo has continued to claim ownership,… disregarding historical
evidence that it has always been Korean territory. The 26-page document also says a group of
islands in the East China Sea,… belong to Japan,… a claim hotly disputed by Beijing.
