Dokdo’s past


Chung Jae-jeong, head of the Northeast Asian History Foundation, looks at an ancient map of the Dokdo islets in the East Sea along with foreign diplomats including Morteza Soltanpoor, charge d’affaires for the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, left from Chung, yesterday during the “Old Map Exhibition - East Sea and Dokdo” at the National Assembly Library in Seoul. Forty ancient maps of Dokdo and the East Sea from countries including Germany, England and Russia were featured for the first time ever. Sovereignty over the islets has been a continuous subject of dispute between Korea and Japan. The exhibition, organized by the foundation, will run until March 9. [YONHAP]
