Japan Calls Korea's Claim "Illegal"

Japan has now decided to call Korea's claim on Tokdo and their 'occupation' of the islands illegal. This is just gonna create warm fuzzys.

The Japanese government repeated its claim over the South Korean-controlled islets of Takeshima, saying Seoul has illegally occupied the islets since 1954.
The Japanese government has previously claimed that the islets of Takeshima, known as Dokdo in Korean, belong to Japan. However, this is apaprently the first time that it has called the South Korean claim to the area illegal.
