Saturday’s Asahi, Yomiuri, and Mainichi took up an announcement made by the ROK Defense Ministry on Friday that its Navy and Air Force carried out joint training to “defend territory” in the vicinity of the Liancourt Rocks (known as Takeshima in Japan and Dokdo in South Korea) on June 2. The GOJ reportedly lodged a protest against the drills in “Japan’s inherent territory.”
