South Korea on Tuesday summoned a senior Japanese diplomat to protest a Tokyo Olympic website map that wrongly shows Dokdo as part of Japanese territory.
The foreign ministry told the deputy chief of mission at the Japanese Embassy in Seoul that an immediate correction should be made.
It said it would bring in the IOC to act as mediator, if necessary.
South Korea's easternmost islets appear on the website's map as part of the Olympics' torch relay route.
