Directive No.3

Directive No. 3 (May 10, 1906)

〔Translation〕

The submitted report has been read and given due consideration. The claim that Dokdo has become [Japanese] territory is completely groundless, so inquire again into the situation on the islands and the activities of the Japanese and submit an updated report.

May 10

* A directive issued by Uijeongbu or the State Council of Joseon, the highest decision-making body of the Korean Empire
