Territorial dispute between Japan and South Korea continue

A territorial dispute between Japan and South Korea continued Thursday. In the latest development, the South Korean government said it plans to return a protest letter by Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. The Japanese leader sent the letter to protest South Korean President Lee Myon-bak's recent visit to a group of rocky islands controlled by South Korea. However the islands are claimed by both countries. South Korea said it is returning the letter because it contains misinformation about the islands. The letter also expressed  regret at the President Lee's recent comments that Japanese Emperor Akihito should apologize for his country's colonial rule of Korea.
