Japan, S. Korea at odds on latter's military drill

English.news.cn   2014-06-20 16:00:18

TOKYO, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Japan and South Korea engaged in verbal attacks Friday as Japan said a live fire military drill by South Korea was near waters surround their disputed area and the move is "totally unacceptable."

The drill was conducted near a pair of rocks that are called " Dokdo" in South Korea and "Takashima" in Japan.

"We made strong calls for the South Korean government to cancel the drill, so it's extremely regrettable," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga was quoted as saying by Japan's Kyodo News.

However, a South Korean military official was quoted as saying that the country has regularly conducted drill in the area, saying Japan's claim that the area includes Japan's territorial sea makes no sense.

Japan's relations with South Korea have frayed due to territorial dispute over the islands and Japan's denial of wartime history.
