S. Korea files "strong complaints" over Japan's false territorial claims toward Dokdo



Japan unveiled its annual defense white paper on Tuesday... in which it repeats the false claim that the South Korean island of Dokdo is Japanese territory.
The Korean government summoned Japanese officials to file a strong complaint.
Yoon Jung-min reports.
South Korea has filed a strong complaint over Japan's repeated false territorial claims... and called for an immediate retraction of such claims.
This comes as Japan in a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday unveiled its annual defense white paper, which, for the 17th year in a row, made false claims over South Korea's easternmost island of Dokdo.
Seoul's foreign ministry pointed out that Japan has recently reinforced such claims.

"The Korean government expresses strong regrets that the Japanese government has been recently intensifying its unjust claims over Dokdo, including through the recent defense white paper."

The ministry made clear that Dokdo belongs to South Korea historically, geographically and by international law... and that it will sternly act against any provocations regarding the island.
On Tuesday, South Korea's foreign ministry called in a senior diplomat from the Japanese embassy in Seoul, Hirohisa Soma... and filed a "strong" complaint.

On the same day, Seoul's defense ministry summoned a military official from the Japanese embassy, Colonel Takashi Matsumoto to protest against Japan's claims.
The ministry expressed "deep regrets" and strongly called for an immediate correction... over Tokyo unilaterally claiming that a South Korean warship directed fire-control radar at a Japanese patrol aircraft in the East Sea in December 2018.
In the paper, Japan claimed that South Korea is "continuing its negative response" when it comes to their relationship, citing heightened military tensions in the East Sea in 2018... and Seoul's defense drills on and around Dokdo.
Tokyo "strongly" urged Seoul for what it calls "proper response" to resolve bilateral issues, citing their trilateral cooperation with the U.S.
This comes ahead of the upcoming Tokyo Olympics this month, where South Korean President Moon Jae-in is likely to visit for talks with his Japanese counterpart.
