The government strongly protests against Japanese textbooks and deputy ambassador… Pay attention to the impact of Korea-Japan relations



The Korean government expressed great regret for passing the Japanese textbook inspection, which further distorted the previous history.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs invited the deputy ambassador at the Japanese Embassy in Korea to protest.

It remains to be seen what impact this will have on Korea-Japan relations.

This is reporter Han Sang-yong.


When Japan passed a textbook that weakened the coercive nature of technology related to conscription and strengthened its claim to Dokdo, the South Korean government immediately protested.

First Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Cho Hyeon-dong called Naoki Kumagai, acting deputy ambassador at the Japanese Embassy in Korea, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to express regret and demand remedial measures. I did,” he said.

The statement also said, “We strongly protest against another textbook expedition that includes unreasonable claims about Dokdo, our own territory, and make it clear that we cannot accept any claims made by Japan on Dokdo.”

He urged the Japanese government to show more responsible behavior in educating future generations when facing history.

Although Yoon Seok-yeol’s government has taken a preemptive step to improve relations with Japan, the future outcome is also notable as bad news from the past between Korea and Japan resurfaces.

This is because passing the inspection of Japanese textbooks, which have more backward descriptions of conscription and Dokdo, could have a negative impact on the opinion of the domestic public in Japan.

Some notice that the ripple effect can be limited.

Since the publication of Japanese textbooks has been repeated over the past 10 years, not only this time, it may be limited to act as a major variable in the great flow of Korea-Japan relations.

However, if Japan continues to distort, deny, and make unreasonable claims about the past, there is a possibility that it will become a diplomatic burden for the Yoon government, which has taken the lead in improving Korea-Japan relations.

In this regard, the government intends to continuously demand correction from the Japanese side of the textbook and history distortion issues, apart from improving Korea-Japan relations.
