The government here has strongly protested against Japan's renewed territorial claims to Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo.
The Foreign Ministry on Monday said Tokyo should stop lodging spurious claims to what is unquestionably Korean territory both from a historical and geographical perspective.
The protest came after Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told the Diet that Dokdo, known as Takeshima in Japan, is part of Japan and pledged to keep strengthening the case for Japanese ownership.
Sitting in the middle of the East Sea, the islets have long been a source of tension between the two countries.
