The Japanese government has recently undertaken various provocative steps in relation to the disputed territory of Dokdo and has gained the support from the ultra-right movement in Japanese society: Shimane Prefecture established Takeshima Day (Takeshima is what the Japanese call Dokdo); Japan’s Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology distorted descriptions of Dokdo in history textbooks; and Japan conducted a maritime survey within the Korean Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) near the island.

Given that Japan’s attempts to seize Dokdo deny the historical record and are based on the same distortion of the facts used to justify Japan’s invasion of Korea, the current situation is even more problematic and has reawakened old wounds in our people who have painful memories of Japan’s past invasion.
