ROK deployed multiple research ships to survey waters around Liancourt Rocks

Monday’s Sankei front-paged the finding that South Korea dispatched three oceanic surveillance vessels to the vicinity of the Liancourt Rocks one after another in late July. One of them apparently conducted maritime research, in response to which a JCG cutter issued a warning on the spot. The ROK side reportedly said the vessel was engaged in “legitimate research activities within our territorial waters.”
