Seoul condemns updated Japanese textbooks


SEOUL: South Korea on Friday protested Tokyo’s approval of updated high school textbooks that identify a cluster of small, Korean-controlled islets as part of Japanese territory. “We deeply deplore that Japan has approved high school textbooks that contain distorted views about history, including unjustified claims about our territory,” South Korea’s foreign ministry said in a statement. The Dokdo islets, known as Takeshima in Japan, lie roughly halfway between South Korea and Japan in the East Sea (Sea of Japan).
