Japan should abandon ambition to seize Tok Island


Japanese reactionaries have gone to extremes in their wild ambition to seize Tok Island.

Of late the Japanese defence minister claimed that Tok Island is clearly pertaining to Japan in terms of history and international law. His sheer sophism provokes a side-splitting laughter.

Bellicose remarks that the "Self-Defense Forces" should be dispatched to expel illegal occupants and there is no option but a war to take back Tok Island are heard even from the Japanese Diet.

This is an expression of the true nature of brigandish Japan obsessed by the greed for territory and the concentrated revelation of shameless distortion of history and the wild ambition to seize Tok Island.

Japan is the only and one country that publishes fabricated history textbooks, far from giving proper education to the rising generation, and employs every possible means such as setting "Takeshima (Tok Island) Day" to stoke aggression.

Japan's distortion and far-fetched assertion based on the fascist doctrine "telling a lie a hundred times makes people believe it as truth" are all an absurd jargon and an intolerable challenge to the sovereignty of the Korean nation.

Tok Island is part of the inalienable territory of the Korean nation from geographical, historical and legal points of view.

This is an immovable truth of history.

Tok Island is the territory of Korea where the Korean people have reclaimed and lived before B.C. and has nothing to do with Japan that came into being after A.D., evidenced by "History of Koryo Kingdom", "Geographical Book Attached to the True Records of King Sejong" and Samguksagi (Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms) and other old documents and data and a secret document opened to the public in 2015 proving that in the early 1900's the village head of Oki Island of Japan, when asked about his viewpoint on Tok Island at the Cabinet, said that Ullung Island and Tok Island are all the islands in the East Sea of Korea.

The Cairo Declaration and the Potsdam Declaration and memorandums Nos. 677 and 1033 signed and issued by the General Headquarters of the Allied Powers during and after the Second World War clearly confirm the legal status of Tok Island as the territory of Korea.

Japan's persistent "dominium over Tok Island" cannot be construed as mere ignorance of history and laws or revelation of the temper of born impostor.

It is the ulterior intention of the ill-natured Japanese reactionaries to provide conditions favorable to the realization of their militaristic ambition for overseas aggression by distorting and fabricating history to their tastes.

Japan makes no scruple of distorting history in a bid to realize its wild ambition for reinvasion.

Japan has already turned into a "country capable of going to war" and dangerous forces of aggression. It is whitewashing and justifying its past crimes in an effort to realize the pipedream of the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere".

It is making desperate efforts to hoist the blood-stained war criminal flag at the venue of Olympic Games symbolic of peace.

Justice is sure to win. This is iron truth shown by history.

All the Koreans and the international community keep close watch at the moves of Japan watching for a chance for reinvasion of the territory where the Korean people have lived down through generations.

Japan should be mindful that it is precipitating destruction and give up its wild ambition to seize the inalienable territory of Korea.
