Sankei wrote from Seoul that the South Korean Navy carried out naval training in the Sea of Japan on Wednesday, in which some ten personnel aboard helicopters practiced landing on the Liancourt Rocks. This was the first drill of its kind in five years and the first one under the Park administration. While noting that the landing session was originally planned in late November, it had been postponed until yesterday perhaps out of deference to Tokyo, with which the Park administration signed a GSOMIA on Nov. 23. Japan’s MOFA reportedly protested the training “on Japanese territory.”
