Japan’s Shameless Claim to Tok Islet Assailed

Pyongyang, May 18 (KCNA) — Japan recently claimed again that Tok Islet is “a part of Japan’s territory,” according to KBS of south Korea.

The minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, while going round a primary school in Tokyo, was asked by schoolchildren: “What do you think about the issue of Takeshima (Tok Islet)?” And the minister was shameless enough to bluster: “You must clearly remember that Takeshima is a part of Japan’s territory.”

With regard to the issue of history textbooks, he justified the distortion of history, saying he thought that the textbooks were proportionate ones and there is no reason to complaint about them.”

The ridiculous balderdash let loose by the minister when Japan’s moves to revive militarism were becoming more blatant was an intolerable insult to the whole Korean nation which touched off the anger of all the Koreans.
