ROK reportedly compiles manual on countering Japanese attack on Liancourt Rocks 

The Saturday editions of Mainichi, Yomiuri, and Sankei took up an ROK media story saying that the South Korean military submitted to the parliament last December an internal document detailing how to counter an SDF invasion of the Liancourt Rocks. The document reportedly underscored the importance for the country of procuring “new strategic assets” to defend the outcrops from an SDF attack. Defense Minister Kishi reportedly disclosed to the press on Friday that the ministry has conveyed “strong concern” about the story to the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo, adding that the islets are Japan’s inherent territory. “It is extremely regrettable that Seoul apparently regards Japan as elevating the military threat,” he added.
