Japanese FM's Claim to Tok Islets Denounced
Pyongyang, February 2 (KCNA) -- Recently Japanese Foreign Minister Kishida at a full-dress session of the House of Representatives said "Tok Islets are part of the inviolable territory of Japan and its side would struggle for them to the last."

Minju Joson Tuesday says in a commentary in this regard:

The Japanese reactionaries' claim to Tok Islets is a revelation of their attempt to employ the same method as what they did at the negotiations with south Korea over the issue of the sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army in realizing their scenario to grab Tok Islets, upbeat over the south Korean authorities' sycophantic and humiliating stance.

It is the calculation of the Japanese reactionaries that there will be no strong resistance to their efforts to push forward their scenario to grab Tok Islets now that they gagged the south Korean conservative ruling quarters in the course of settling the issue of sexual slavery to a certain measure.

The war crimes of Japan including the crimes related to the sexual slavery can never be glossed over. They are not the matters to be settled by gagging the south Korean authorities only.

The same is true of the issue of Tok Islets.

Tok Islets are part of the inviolable territory of the Korean nation. The whole Korean nation has dominium over Tok Islets.

The Koreans will never give up dominium over Tok Islets even though the islets may disappear due to many years' storms.

No matter what sheer sophism the Japanese reactionaries may spout to grab Tok Islets in a bid to realize their scenario for territorial expansion, this would get them nowhere, the commentary warns.
