SOUTH KOREA WARNS JAPAN OVER SURVEY OF DISPUTED ISLETS

The South Korean government warned Japan not to carry out a maritime survey near two disputed islets, saying it would take "stern measures" if it did. The Japanese government said last week that it planned to survey the sea bed around the uninhabited islets, called Takeshima in Japan and Tokto in South Korea. A continuing dispute over the islets, which are under South Korea's control, has been a main source of strained relations between the countries in the past year. NORIMITSU onISHI (NYT)

While Koizumi has tightened Tokyo's relationship with its top ally, the United States, he has also overseen a sharp deterioration in relations with China and South Korea.

Both nations are boycotting summits with Koizumi because of his trips to Yasukuni Shrine, which honors Japan's war dead, including executed war criminals.

Koizumi's insistence on the visits has exacerbated other disagreements with Japan's neighbors over territorial claims, most recently a tiff with Seoul over a pair of volcanic islets.
