US has told an international agency that the ocean between Korea and Japan ought to be named 'Sea of Japan', instead of 'East Sea'.
It is hard to understand this kind of decision, considering that East Sea belongs to Korea's territory.
This naming problem does not end with the name; the current territorial dispute with Dokdo island falls right into place with this naming dispute as well.
If the international community gives Sea of Japan an O.K., then obviously this Dokdo problem will favor Japan, who has been claming false evidence and statements for the ownership of the islands.
Even old, ancient maps named the sea 'East Sea', not 'Sea of Japan'... how could they just change it now?
What kind of deal in the back did they make to make this possible?
Maybe the US has fallen for Japan's plan as well.
