Takeshima is Japanese territory (Asahi Shimbun)

The Government of Japan hands over document to South Korea

The Government of Japan recently handed over a document to the Government of South Korea refuting the South Korean claim that Takeshima is South Korean territory.
 Since the Korean side protested conversely that "Takeshima was Korean territory" in September of last year when the Government of Japan handed over a document of protest against invasion of Takeshima by South Korean people before, subsequently, the Government of Japan has researched basis and evidence historically and geographically of that Takeshima is Japanese territory, and consequently Japan confirmed that it is the territory of Japan, and at this time handed over the documents to South Korean side.
