South Korea believes that the Sea of Japan to be renamed

January 9 2007

Seoul insists on renaming Sea of Japan. According to Korean experts, the name historically obsolete and no longer reflects reality.

The South Koreans insist that the sea separating the two countries, got its name during the colonial power in Japan, which after the Second World War came to an end.

Seoul insists that the sea should now be called the East. Despite the fact that the official Tokyo has refused to rename geographic place, some cartographic company did agree to include the name "East Sea" along with the generally accepted "Sea of Japan", reports AP.
