S. Korea not considering boycotting Olympics over renewed Dokdo Island spat Updated: 2021-06-08 18:15:16 KST

South Korea's foreign ministry says it is not considering a boycott of the Tokyo Olympics due to the recent spat with Japan over its renewed claims regarding South Korea's easternmost island of Dokdo.
This is the first time that South Korea has clarified its stance on the matter after some local political heavyweights raised the possibility.
The issue was sparked by Japan's refusal to revise the map of the Tokyo Olympic torch relay route on its website which marked Dokdo Island as its territory despite repeated requests by South Korea.
The ministry says it's still undecided on the possibility of a Seoul, Tokyo, Washington trilateral summit or Seoul-Tokyo bilateral summit during the upcoming G7 summit held in the UK.
