Japan's Territorial Claim on Tok Islets Blasted
Pyongyang, December 8 (KCNA) -- The Japanese minister in charge of Okinawa and Northern Territories recently stated that "Japan will set up a new homepage within this year to carry videos to put across Japan's stand on Senkaku Islands in Okinawa Prefecture and Takeshima in Shimane Prefecture."

He also clarified that the ministry would hold the first session of the combined coordination meeting in the presence of those concerned in Foreign and Defense Ministries to discuss external information service on territorial issues.

Minju Joson Sunday in a commentary says the Korean people can never tolerate the Japanese reactionaries' insistence that Tok islets belong to Japan and their intention to convince the world people of their brigandish assertion.

Tok Islets are part of the inviolable territory of Korea that has existed along with the brilliant history of the Korean nation spanning 5 000 years.

The Japanese reactionaries handle the territorial issues in close relation with the moves to realize their militarist ambition for expansion overseas.

They are trying hard to make the Japanese believe that Japan's territory usurped by others must be retaken.

By doing so they seek to make them think that the militarist war of aggression is a "just war" to retake their own land, not a war for embezzling other's territory. This is the major purpose sought by the Japanese reactionaries in causing territorial disputes.

The Japanese reactionaries should stop their territorial claim, understanding that they can never encroach on even a stone or a blade of grass on the islets.
