ROK lawmakers land on Liancourt Rocks

All national dailies reported on Sunday that six members of the ROK National Assembly landed on the disputed Liancourt Rocks on Saturday and held a news conference where they criticized Japan’s tightened controls on exports to the ROK. Mainichi, Nikkei, and Sankei said the Japanese Foreign Ministry lodged a protest on the same day.  According to this morning’s Sankei, Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga told the press yesterday that the GOJ does not condone the ROK parliamentarians’ visit to what he referred to as the nation’s “inherent” territory.
