Japan withdraws it ambassador in South Korea to protest Lee's visit to islands

Japan is withdrawing its ambassador to South Korea to protest a visit by South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak to islands claimed by both nations. Japanese Foreign Minister Koichiro Gemba said Friday that Mr. Lee's visit was unacceptable and would  have a lasting effect on the relation between two nations. Mr. Lee became the first South Korean President to ever visit the islands on Friday. South Korean officials said the visit was not meant to create problems.

My thought/opinion on this news
This conflict between two nations is far away from ordinary people's feeling, I think. Because in Japan, a lot of South Korean entertainers have become popular now, two country's people are not likely to be conscious of border between them.  
Recent days, several conflicts on national border around Japan have happened. I am a little bit worried that the situation might be worse.
