Korea has demanded Japan clarify media reports that say Tokyo is looking to require middle and high school texts refer to Korea's Dokdo islets as Japanese territory.
Summoning a deputy chief at the Japanese embassy in Seoul Sunday, the Korean foreign ministry said that, if the reports are true, Tokyo must call off its plans immediately.
Accusing Tokyo of instilling future generations with a wrong perspective of history, the ministry says it will not sit back and watch Japan's provocative acts regarding Korean territory.
On Saturday, Japanese media reported the government may soon revise guidelines to have school texts claim Korea occupied Dokdo illegally, and that there's no territorial dispute over the Senkaku or Diaoyu islands in the East China Sea, which China claims as its own.
