` South Korea summons Japan over ` Disputed Islet Claim ‘ and Plan to Promote its Stance on School Text-Books’

#AceWorldNews – SEOUL – April 04 – The South Korean Foreign Ministry summoned the Japanese ambassador Friday over an alleged claim by Tokyo to a disputed set of tiny islets and a plan to promote its stance in school text books, AFP said.

Seoul formally conveyed its protest to Japanese Ambassador Koro Bessho over a section in Japan’s newly released foreign policy report ‘Diplomatic Bluebook 2014’.

The report identified the disputed islets – known as Dokdo in Korean and Takeshima in Japanese – as Japanese territory.

“Our government expresses strong regret at Japan’s outrageous claim on our indigenous territory, Dokdo,” the South Korean ministry said.
