"Projects Unveiled to Reinforce Sovereignty Over Dokdo"

An August 21 article in the Korean Times entitled, "Projects Unveiled to Reinforce Sovereignty Over Dokdo," talks about the Korean government's plans to reenforce Korea's sovereignty over Dokdo. The plans include the following:
  • Renovate a shelter for fishermen on Dokdo
  • Develop infrastruction on Ulleungdo
  • Begin joint projects to protect the enviroment around Dokdo
  • Promote international awareness of Japan's repeated claims over the islets
  • Rocks, breakwaters, and a museum dedicated to Ahn Yong-bok (who the Korea Times thinks defended Korea's ownership of Dokdo in in the 18th century instead of the 17th)
  • Strengthen education and promotional actitivities about Dokdo
  • Expand military drills and beef up the security of Dokdo by deploying more patrol ships near the islets

South Korea has a million-man North Korean army on its northern border, yet she seems to be more worried about an invasion of Dokdo.
