Dokdo is Korean Territory (2011년)



Dokdo is Korean Territory


Historical Association of Korea-Japan Relations

 

Japan is still Claiming sovereignty over Dokdo, Korea's proper territory, with ungrounded argument that the Islets are integral part of Japanese territory. Japan's logic is thus. Japan has known about Dokdo from the ancient times, established sovereignty over them since at least the mid-17th century, and reaffirmed that sovereignty in a modern legal sense has existed since 1905 by incorporating Dokdo into Shimane Prefecture. In the post-war San Francisco Peace Treaty, which went into effect in 1952, Dokdo was not expressly included in the article concerning Korean territory Japan had to give up, and is therefore still Japanese territory.
Japan's logic is designed to cover up the core materials on the islets and to trick both its own citizens and people of the world. The truth is thus : in the late 17th century, Japan confirmed that Dokdo wasn't Japanese territory, and reconfirmed twice in 1870 and 1877 that Dokdo was Korean territory. In 1905, however, Japan-hiding those historic documents, claimed Dokdo was an unnamed and unclaimed land, and forcefully incorporated Dokdo into Shimane Prefecture on the basis of occupation theory. Since this argument ran counter to claims that the islands always were Japanese territory, Japan later switched from the "terra nullius" argument to arguing that the 1905 incorporation "reaffirmed" Japanese sovereignty. However, prior to this "reaffirmation", japan had never "confirmed" its sovereignty over the islands. In the end, the San Francisco Peace Treaty Japan has made with the United States and Great Britain does not mention Dokdo : that agreement does not recognize the islets as Japanese territory. Ultimately, Japan, while hiding documents that are decidedly unfavorable to it, is simply claiming sovereignty over Dokdo even now with imperialist ideas of the past
This booklet will reveal Japan's logic to be faulty and full of contradictions. I hope that through this booklet the people of the world will come to learn the truth about Dokdo
