Japan lodges protest over South Korea’s livestreaming from Takeshima 

Saturday’s Sankei wrote that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs lodged a strong protest with South Korea on Friday over its livestreaming of real-time video images of the disputed Takeshima/Dokdo Islands via the Internet starting on Friday and demanded that Seoul immediately stop streaming the images. MOFA Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau chief Funakoshi told a senior official at the South Korean Embassy in Tokyo by phone that the move by South Korea is totally unacceptable and extremely regrettable because the islands are an inherent part of Japan’s territory in terms of history and international law. A senior official at the Japanese Embassy in Seoul also lodged a protest with the ROK government.
