    The Japanese government unveiled elementary school textbooks that have a map of Korea's Dokdo islets marked as Japanese territory. Japan's education ministry made public 148 of such textbooks in Tokyo.

    The map shows a demarcation line clearly separating Dokdo and Ulleung Island in the East Sea to emphasize that Dokdo belongs to Japan.

    This is the first time for Japan to mark the islets on a map in textbooks. It plans to start distributing them nationwide starting in July.
