South Koreans stage rallies to denounce Takeshima Day     02-22-2014 13:24 BJT



Japan is holding celebrations in Shimane Prefecture to mark its "Takeshima Island Day". The event aims at proclaiming sovereignty over a group of disputed islets, known as Takeshima in Japan, and Dokdo in South Korea.
The Japanese government is sending Yoshitmi Kameoka, a parliamentary secretary with Japanese Cabinet Office, to attend the ceremony.
This is the second time a high-level government official has attended the event, along with hundreds of people.
Japan’s Shimane Prefectural government has observed February 22nd as "Takeshima Day" since 2005, to lay claim to the long disputed island in the East Japan Sea.
In Seoul, South Korean civic groups staged rallies to denounce the event on Friday. The South Korean government has slammed the ceremony, and urged Japan to cancel it.
