Japan approves school textbooks falsely claiming Dokdo as Japanese territory Updated: 2020-03-24 15:57:14 KST

The Japanese government has announced the textbooks it'll use next year in its middle schools, and they include books that repeat Japan's false claims to South Korea's easternmost islets of Dokdo.
On Tuesday it authorized 17 textbooks on history, civics and geography that say South Korea's Dokdo islets are Japanese territory illegally occupied by South Korea.
The South Korean government sees these books as not only teaching students falsities about Dokdo, but also distorting history and attempting to whitewash Japan's imperialism, while downplaying its use of wartime sex slavery and forced labor.
