Recently, the Japanese reactionaries rebuilt the “territorial sovereignty exhibition”, housing data justifying their territorial ambition including those related to Tok Islets, in other area to be 7 times bigger than the previous exhibition.
After its opening, the minister in charge of Okinawa and Northern Territories said that the exhibits clearly show the historical and lawful trends concerning the dominium and prove with decency Takeshima (Tok Islets) was the proper territory of Japan, adding that discontented countries had better come and see for themselves.
This clearly testifies to the Japanese reactionaries’ frenzy for territory getting all the more persistent and stronger despite denunciation and warning by the world.
Tok Islets are part of the inviolable territory of the Korean nation.
Historical documents like Chronicles of Three Kingdoms and History of Koryo and even prestigious maps of Japan clearly prove that the dominium over Tok Islets belongs to the Korean nation.
It is clear that the “data” and exhibits in the exhibition, which angle the historical truth, are peppered with absurd and unreasonable content.
A typical example is a stuffed Steller’s sea lion on display in the “Takeshima hall”.
With an explanation that it is a stuffed specimen of a sea lion which lived in the waters off Tok Islets in around 1930, the Japanese territorial expansionists claim that Tok Islets surely belong to Japan in the light of the fact that the Japanese hunted sea lions in the said waters from early in the 1600s, early days of the Edo Shogunate.
It is shocking that they are so foolish and impudent enough to abuse even data about plunder and loot of other country’s resources for covering up its sinister intention.
It is a lesson taught by history that political and diplomatic conflicts and contradiction among countries over territorial problem beget disputes and they lead to war.
The ultra-right forces of Japan are trying hard to cause a military conflict through the brigandish assertion on “dominium” over Tok Islets and the waters around the islets, and launch reinvasion with it as an opportunity.
The “territorial sovereignty exhibition” was refurbished for the purpose of training a shock brigade for launching reinvasion.
The Japanese reactionaries’ ambition to seize Tok Islets can never come true.
The exhibition in the island country will be historical evidence indicating the aggressive nature of the Japanese reactionaries. -0
