The dispute over the rights to Dokdo seems to be never ending. It is an incredibly ambiguous question in international policy. Neither South Korea nor Japan could find a suitable compromise to solve this problem. Also the international community cannot help to make a proper decision. The Liancourt Rocks, also known as Dokdo in Korea or Takeshima in Japan, are a group of small islands in the East Sea (second name: Sea of Japan). The name of the game is who has legal rights to Dokdo. South Korea and Japan are not able to finish this game and decide who the winner is. The aim of writing this essay is to argue that South Korea has reasonable cause to claim Dokdo as its own territory. First, I would like to highlight a brief history of the Korean-Japanese relations concerning Dokdo. Second, examine the claims of each sidein the dispute. And, finally, come to some conclusions.
To consider the Japanese and the Korean position, it is better to start with examining historical background over this problem. The Japanese side usually relies on historical documents, giving proof of rights to Dokdo.
