Korea criticizes Japan's recent video claim to Dokdo
The Korean government is lambasting a video by the Japanese government that lays claim to the Korea-controlled Dokdo islets.
Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted a link to a video on YouTube last Wednesday that says Dokdo is Japanese territory.
The video contends Japan gained sovereignty over the rocky islets in the 17th century, and reaffirmed its claim in 1905.
Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Wednesday that it is unacceptable for Japan to use historical inaccuracies for promotional purposes.
The Japanese video follows a similar video posted by the Korean foreign ministry just three days before.
