Japan lodges protest over South Korea’s maritime research around Liancourt Rocks

Asahi reported online on a MOFA announcement that Vice Foreign Minister Sugiyama phoned the South Korean ambassador to Japan this morning and filed a protest against research conducted earlier in the day by an ROK ship in Japan’s EEZ near Takeshima (the Liancourt Rocks) in the Sea of Japan. The vessel in question reportedly conducted research the previous day as well without seeking Tokyo’s permission, which prompted MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau Director Kanesugi to lodge a protest.
