MOFA calls on ROK not to livestream video of Takeshima online

NHK reported on Thursday that South Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries announced earlier in the day that it will start providing real-time video images of the disputed Takeshima/Dokdo Islands on an ROK government website starting today with the aim of increasing people’s interest in the outcrops. The network said MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau chief Funakoshi lodged a protest with the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo on Thursday afternoon, stressing that the islands are “an inherent part of Japan’s territory in terms of history and international law” and that South Korea’s latest move is “totally unacceptable and extremely regrettable.” Funakoshi also reportedly urged South Korea to cancel the live-streaming project.
