South Korea starts military training on Liancourt Rocks

The Monday morning editions of all national dailies took up the start of a South Korean military exercise in the vicinity of the Liancourt Rocks on Sunday, saying that the Moon administration went ahead the biannual training, which had been postponed since June, following its decision to end its GSOMIA with Japan. The two-day drill, which reportedly involves twice as much personnel and defense hardware as previous exercises, is designed to “protect territories in the East Sea,” the Korean name for the Sea of Japan. The GOJ lodged a protest immediately.
