South Korea is protesting Japan's latest attempt to falsely claim South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo as Japanese territory.
The claim was made on Tuesday in Tokyo's new defense white paper.
The foreign ministry in Seoul said in a statement that Japan needs to realize that repeating what it called such a preposterous claim will not help their bilateral relationship.
Both the foreign and defense ministries summoned Japanese officials and demanded that Japan immediately correct the claim, which it's now made for sixteen years in a row.
