Ja­pan’s re­newed claim de­nounced

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Seoul on Tues­day de­nounced Ja­pan’s re­newed ter­ri­to­rial claim to its east­ern­most islets of Dokdo, called Takeshima in Ja­pan, which was laid in the Ja­panese an­nual de­fense white paper. Ja­pan pub­lished its 2017 de­fense white paper ear­lier in the day, in which it claimed Takeshima is part of its ter­ri­tory. It marked the 13th con­sec­u­tive year that Ja­pan laid sovereignty claim in its white paper to the rocky out­crop­pings ly­ing half­way be­tween the two coun­tries.
