MOFA Spokesperson’s Commentary on Japan’s Diplomatic Bluebook 2020
May 22, 2020
Global Korean Post
The government of the Republic of Korea strongly protests the Japanese government’s repeated inclusion of unjust sovereignty claims over Dokdo, which is clearly an integral part of the ROK’s territory historically, geographically and under international law, in its Diplomatic Bluebook released on May 19.
The ROK government urges the Japanese government to immediately withdraw such claims.
The ROK government makes it clear once again that the Japanese government’s unjust claims do not have any impact on the ROK’s sovereignty over Dokdo, an integral part of the territory of the Republic of Korea, and that it will respond sternly to any provocations over Dokdo.
