MOFA Spokesperson’s Statement on So-Called “Dokdo Day” Event Held by Japan’s Shimane Prefecture
1. Regarding the so-called “Dokdo Day” event hosted by Japan’s Shimane Prefecture on February 22 and participation by a high-level official of Japan’s central government, the government of the Republic of Korea strongly protests against Japan’s repetition of futile provocations over Dokdo and once again sternly urges an immediate abolition of the event.
2. As Dokdo is clearly an integral part of the Korean territory in terms of history, geography and international law, the Japanese government must immediately stop making unjustified claims over Dokdo and squarely face history in a humble manner.
