The government denounced an event that Japan’s Shimane Prefecture hosted Sunday promoting Japan’s claim to Korea’s Dokdo islets, calling the move historically regressive behavior.
 
In a statement issued on Sunday, the Foreign Ministry in Seoul said it deeply regrets that Tokyo sent a senior government official to the annual event that highlights Japan’s territorial claim to Korean islets in the East Sea.
 
The statement said that by sending a high-level official to the event for the third year, Japan is not only denying its history of aggression but also raising doubts about its sincerity to strengthen ties with South Korea this year, which will mark the 50th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations.
 
The ministry stressed that there can be no provocation of any kind against Dokdo which is clearly Korean territory historically, geographically and under international law.
 
The Shimane Prefectural Government has convened a ceremony every year since 2006 and the Japanese government has sent a parliamentary secretary from the Cabinet Office to the event since 2013.
