Senior GOJ official attends “Takeshima Day” ceremony

Yomiuri and Nikkei wrote that Parliamentary Vice-Minister of the Cabinet Office Mutai attended a ceremony organized by the prefectural government in Matsue, Shimane, on Feb. 22 to commemorate “Takeshima Day.” Mutai stated at the ceremony that Takeshima clearly belongs to Japan, both in historical terms and under international law. This is the fifth year in a row for the Japanese government to send a senior official to the event. The South Korean Foreign Ministry summoned the Japanese Embassy’s Minister-Counselor Suzuki on Wednesday to lodge a protest over Tokyo’s dispatch of the senior government representative to the annual ceremony.
