Japan makes distorted claims over ancient history Updated: 2015-04-09 04:25:59 KST

We start with Japan's latest attempts to distort history, and this example stretches back centuries to ancient times.
A Korea-based media outlet is reporting that Tokyo is strengthening its historical claims that it ruled over Korean territory around the time of the Gaya confederacy.
The theory of Imna or Mimana in Japanese, comes from Japanese scholars who claim that Japan established a military outpost in Gaya during Korea's ancient Three Kingdom Period, and ruled over the territory from the end of the fourth to the sixth century.
The Imna theory, which remains a disputed issue, is presented as a widely-accepted theory in most of middle school history textbooks that were recently approved by Japanese government, as well as on its culture ministry's website.
