Some foreign students visited the Liancourt Rocks and were told by their Korean hosts that the islets belong to Korea.
Foreign students in Busan have paid a visit to Dokdo, amid renewed diplomatic activity to head off challenges to Korea’s sovereignty over its easternmost islets.
Some 60 students from nine countries including China and India who are attending universities in the southeastern port city were invited to the islets in the East Sea to inform them of Korea’s sovereignty over the islets. The trip was organized by the Dokdo School established in 1994.
Students spent most of it on a ship watching a dance performance on Dokdo and listening to lectures about the sovereignty issue that focused on international law and ancient maps.
I wonder if the maps shown were like the photoshopped maps at the Dokdo Museum. They would have to be since Korea does not have any maps before the 20th century, much less “ancient maps”, of the Liancourt Rocks.
Why not give students both sides of the story and letting them decide for themselves whether the Liancourt Rocks should belong to Korea, Japan, or neither country?
