The Korean Government’s Basic Position on Dokdo

  • Dokdo is an integral part of Korean territory, historically, geographically and under international law.
  • No territorial dispute exists regarding Dokdo, and therefore Dokdo is not a matter to be dealt with
    through diplomatic negotiations or judicial settlement.
  • The government of the Republic of Korea exercises Korea’s irrefutable territorial sovereignty over Dokdo.
  • The government will deal firmly and resolutely with any provocation and will continue to defend Korea’s
    territorial integrity over Dokdo.
