The Puzzling "Rhee Declaration" (Shimane Shimbun)

Utterly opposed Strong reaction from fishing industry Shimane

But it has also evoked a strong reaction from the fishery industry in Shimane Prefecture, where there had been hopes that prewar fishery operations going as far as Korean waters could be resumed after the Peace Treaty comes into effect.
