S. Korea lodges strong complaint with Japan over false territorial claims Updated: 2020-05-19 17:08:19 KST

Seoul's foreign ministry lodged strong protest against Tokyo's false claims over South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo known as Takeshima in Japan.
The ministry summoned Japan's number two envoy to South Korea, Hirohisa Soma and urged Tokyo to immediately withdraw such claims.
In its diplomatic bluebook released Tuesday, Japan makes false claims that Dokdo is Japanese territory illegally occupied by South Korea.
Seoul reiterated that Dokdo is historically, geographically and by international law South Korean territory and that Tokyo's claims cannot affect Seoul's sovereignty over Dokdo.
