China's Maritime Disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea
-- This video is part of the Council on Foreign Relations "China's Maritime Disputes" InfoGuide Presentation: http://cfr.org/chinasea -- Video: Preventative Measures: http://on.cfr.org/17xUJXJ Video: Crisis Management: http://on.cfr.org/HteSC8 The East and South China Seas are the scene of escalating territorial disputes between China and its neighbors, including Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The tensions, shaped by China's growing assertiveness, have fueled concerns over armed conflict and raised questions about Washington's security commitments in its strategic rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region. "Maritime disputes in the East and South China Seas are a pressing issue for the United States, China, and much of the rest of the world," says Elizabeth Economy, CFR's Director for Asia Studies. The region is rich in natural resources, home to many of the world's most dynamic economies, and an important global trade route for energy supplies and other goods. It is also a region in which power politics are at play and defense budgets are rising rapidly. As China's economic ascent facilitates growing military capabilities and assertiveness in both the East and South China Seas, other regional players are also experiencing their own rise in nationalism and military capability, and have exhibited greater willingness to stake territorial claims. Meanwhile, the U.S. "pivot" to Asia, involving renewed diplomatic activity and military redeployment, could signal Washington's heightened role in the disputes. If not managed wisely, these disputes could turn part of Asia's maritime regions from thriving trade channels into arenas of conflict. "If there is a use of force between Japan and China, this could be a full-on, all -out conflict between these two Asian giants, and as a treaty ally of Japan, will automatically trigger or automatically involve the United States," cautions Sheila A. Smith, CFR's Senior Fellow for Japan Studies. These dynamics pose an "exquisite" dilemma for U.S. foreign policy, says CFR President Richard N. Haass. "The danger is that twenty-first-century Asia could begin to go the way of twentieth-century Europe."

(May 22, 2019) South China Sea High Tension - US / UK / China - WW3 News Update Today
UK to send new aircraft carrier loaded with F35 jets into South China Sea The United Kingdom will deploy its new aircraft carrier, loaded with two squadrons of F-35 aircraft into the politically-fraught South China Sea. British Defense Minister Gavin Williamson confirmed in a speech that the Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth will sail into waters that are the subject of dispute between China and other nations. At an address given to the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London, Williamson said Britain was the second largest investor in the region and it must display “hard power” and “lethality” to help protect interests. The £3 billion ($3.9 billion) carrier’s outing will also sail into the Middle East and Mediterranean and will be officially a mixed U.K./U.S. deployment. “Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier’s air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces (and) reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners,” Williamson said. The U.K. defense minister did not confirm exact dates for the mission. China has laid claim to almost all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources. United States destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed close to the Spratly Islands, territory disputed by China and the Philippines. China claimed that the ships entered without official permission but a spokesman for the US Navy’s 7th Fleet told CNN that the operation was to “challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law.” China is in the process of developing its own aircraft carrier capability, with currently only one considered combat-ready. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) the country could have as many as 6 carriers by the 2030s. Source www.cnbc.com

The Philippines, Vietnam, and Territorial Disputes in the South China Sea
As Beijing continues to trumpet its “New Type of Great Power Relationship” with the United States, and the United States attempts to buttress its “Rebalance to Asia”, Asia-Pacific nations keep a close eye on relations between the two giants. http://www.wilsoncenter.org/event/the-philippines-vietnam-and-territorial-disputes-the-south-china-sea New questions about China’s intentions and America’s commitments in the region seem to arise every week of late. Tensions are flaring over the Philippines’ arrest of Chinese poachers in its exclusive economic zone, over Chinese reconstruction of a reef in the Spratley Islands, and over Chinese drilling near the disputed Paracel Islands and the protests that ensued in Hanoi. Dr. Aileen Baviera of the University of the Philippines and Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan of the Institute for Foreign Policy and Strategic Studies of the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam discussed their respective countries’ interests in the region and their perspectives on Sino-U.S. cooperation and competition in Asia-Pacific. This event was part of the Wilson Center’s Weighing the Rebalance Series, a joint effort of the Asia Program and the Kissinger Institute on China and the United States. This three-year series brings regional experts to Washington to analyze Chinese and American roles in Asia-Pacific from the viewpoints of countries affected by Sino-U.S. competition and cooperation. The Series will conclude with a multilateral conference and publication of policy-briefs for policymakers in Washington and Beijing.

Vietnam Warns China on Sea Dispute - 'This is Unacceptable' (CNN)
http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2014/05/28/vietnam-accuses-china-of-creating-facts-on-the-ground/ May 28th, 2014 China is "creating facts on the ground" in the South China Sea, Vietnam's Ambassador to the U.S. Nguyễn Quốc Cường told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday. At question is an area of the South China Sea near the Paracel Islands; China this month installed an oil rig in an area both countries claim as their own. This week a Chinese boat rammed and sunk a Vietnamese fishing boat near the oil rig; and in Vietnam, violent riots against the Chinese have forced Beijing to evacuate thousands of its workers. "China is trying to turn [an] undisputed area into a disputed area. And that is unacceptable," Nguyễn Quốc Cường said. ____________________________ Vietnam ambassador on dispute with China https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdukWcWa9yo CNN International Channel here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEgvSsB99tT_tCrAazia_hA

Will VIETNAM clash with CHINA over SOUTH CHINA SEA? - KJ Vids
Vietnam is modernising its military and fostering ties with the US and other countries. In a broader context of US-China competition, it seems that Vietnam will play an increasingly important role; but at the same time, this will put it in a collision course with the China, with potentially detrimental consequences for international security and for the regional stability of an area marked by territorial disputes. Only time will tell what will happen, but it seems that Sino-Vietnamese relations will follow a downgrading course in the coming years.

What does China want? | The Economist
An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Causes of South China Sea disputes
Before the 1970s, China and the Philippines had no disputes in the South China Sea. However, in 1968, a report revealed that the east and south sides of the Nansha Islands were rich in oil and gas resources. The South China Sea soon became the center of global attention. In this episode, we will discover how the disputes arose.

East Sea Dispute
East Sea Dispute --------------------------- There is dispute over the international name for this body of water. Japan points out that the name "Sea of Japan" was used in a number of European maps from the late 18th century to the early 19th century, and that many maps today retain this naming. However, the Korean governments have protested that Japan encouraged the usage of the name "Sea of Japan" while Korea lost effective control over its foreign policy under Japanese imperial expansion. South Korea argues that the name "East Sea", which was one of the most common names found on old European maps of this sea, should be the name instead of "Sea of Japan." Some old maps from various European countries label the area as the Sea of Chosun (Joseon), Sea of Corea (Korea), or East Sea. Japan claims that Western countries named it the "Sea of Japan" prior to 1860, before the growth of Japanese influence over Korean foreign policy after the outbreak of the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894. Further, Japan claims that the primary naming occurred during the period of Sakoku, when Japan had very little foreign contact, and thus Japan could not have influenced the naming decisions. It was in 1928, when the International Hydrographic Organization's Limits of Oceans and Seas officially took the name Sea of Japan, which eventually influenced other official international documents such as the United Nations. South Korea claims that Korea was occupied by the Japanese and effectively had no international voice to protest in 1928. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for South Korea, the name Donghae (East Sea) has been used in Korea for over 2,000 years, including in History of the Three Kingdoms (1145), the monument of King Gwanggaeto, and "Map of Eight Provinces of Korea" (1530). The first documented map to name the area the Sea of Japan was the world map drawn by the Italian missionary Matteo Ricci in China (1602) named Kunyu Wanguo Quantu. No Japanese record published up to the late-18th century indicated any name for the body of water. Furthermore, South Korea has pointed out that a few 19th-century Japanese maps referred to the sea as Chōsenkai (Sea of Joseon), including the "Simplified Map of Japan's Periphery" (1809) and "New World Map" (1844). South Korea argues there was no standard name prior to Japan's military expansion in the region in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Additionally, it specifically states that the name Sea of Japan was not widely used, even in Japan, as late as the mid 19th century. Thus, South Korea argues that the current name reflects active promotion by Japan during a time when Korea could not represent its interests internationally. The Japanese government claims that the name Sea of Japan was internationally used since the 17th century and established by the early 19th century, during a period in which Japan was under an isolationist policy (Sakoku) of the Tokugawa shogunate, which restricted cultural exchange and commerce with foreign countries except China and the Netherlands until 1854. Johann von Krusenstern was an admiral and explorer, who led the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe. According to Japanese records, it was Krusenstern who popularized the name "Mer du Japon" (Sea of Japan) in the West. In his work "Reise um die Welt in den Jahren" (1812), he wrote, "People also call this sea area the Sea of Korea, but because only a small part of this sea touches the Korean coast, it is better to name it the Sea of Japan." The original book was published in St. Petersburg in German and Russian, and distributed widely among Europe. As a result, the international name of the sea changed from no name to the Sea of Japan, on the maps drawn by countries other than Japan or Korea during the 17th to 20th centuries.

China's territorial claims | The Economist
Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbours bedevil its boundaries to the east, south and west. Added to www.audiovideo.economist.com in February 2010. Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj Over the centuries China has grown and shrunk, and grown. It began as a unified state in a third century BC but became far larger by the time of Mongol rule in the 13th century, and again during the last imperial dynasty the Qing. In 1921 Mongolia's independence took out a huge chunk. Today's map is a legacy of empire building. Suspicions between the People's Republic of China and its neighbors still bedevil its borders. Even at the best of times China and Japan often treat each other as rivals. Their differences are sharpened by territorial feuds. A cluster of rocks called the Diaoyutai Islands, or Senkakus in Japanese, is the focus of much bickering. Japan controls them, but China says it should. And how to draw the line between their exclusive economic zones. Japan says it should be halfway between them, China claims the entire continental shelf up close to Okinawa. In 2008 both sides agreed to develop the area together but now Japan's are angry about the Chunxiao gas field, known as Shirakaba gas field in Japanese, where it thinks China is trying to suck natural gas from the Japanese economic zone. Other claims would stretch China's territory deep into Southeast Asia. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia all have competing claims with China here. In 2002 all parties agree to exercise self-restraint but tensions have been growing again recently. China said last year it wanted to develop tourism on the Paracel Islands which are also claimed by Vietnam. Again oil and gas are involved, and China wants a boat service from Hainan. Tensions are simmering again in the Himalayas too. Disagreements here with India led to a border war in 1962. China's recent worries about Tibet seem to be reviving them. China's stepped up its accusations that India is occupying what China calls South Tibet. India calls this region the state of Arunachal Pradesh. To the west India says China is occupying its territory in Aksai Chin. Talks between China and India have been getting nowhere. Finally there's Taiwan. China's long been fearful that the island might make a formal bid for independence. In the mid-1990s China made gestures that alarmed Taiwan and its backer America. America moved to aircraft carriers close to the island is warning to China to back off. Lately things have been smoother; in 2008 director rights between Taiwan and the mainland were launched along with direct sea transport and postal links. China's trying to persuade its neighbors that its rise is not to be feared but its border disputes and feud with Taiwan create widespread unease in the region. Many wonder whether a powerful China might one day try to take by force the land that it sees as its own.

Vietnam Sinks Chinese ships in the South China Sea war
Vietnam Sinks Chinese ships in the South China Sea war Vietnam has lodged an official protest with China following the sinking of a Vietnamese fishing vessel in the contested South China Sea, the foreign ministry said late on Thursday. The two countries have long been embroiled in a dispute over the potentially energy-rich stretch of waters, called the East Sea by Vietnam. The fishing vessel was moored near Da Loi island in the Paracel archipelago on March 6 when a China Maritime Surveillance Vessel chased it and fired a water cannon at it, the ministry said in a statement.

Japanese comment as talks continue on East China Sea gas dispute
1. Head of Japan Foreign Ministry's Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau Kenichiro Sasae getting out of car 2. Wide of Sasae walking into lobby to speak with reporters 3. SOUNDBITE (Japanese): Kenichiro Sasae, Head of Japan Foreign Ministry's Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau: "Through the meeting I felt the Chinese side had an incentive to move this issue forward through concerted efforts. However, I think that whether that was reflected in reality was another matter. We need to measure that on merit. " 4. Cutaway cameraman 5. Sasae and aides walking away STORYLINE: Japan and China on Tuesday ended two days of talks aimed at solving a row over gas exploration rights in the East China Sea with a new Chinese resolution plan and a Japanese promise to look into it. But there was little sign that the two sides were able to narrow their differences. China presented the new proposal during the fourth senior working-level talks in Beijing, following Japan's presentation of its own ideas in the last round of talks in the autumn. Kenichiro Sasae, Head of the Japanese Foreign Ministry's Asian and Oceanian Affairs Bureau, declined to discuss the content of the Chinese proposal, saying the Japanese side were going to study it carefully and consider the many points within it. Sasae hinted at frustration on the Japanese side, saying that although he felt there was a willingness on the part of Chinese officials to make progress, he thought that, "whether that was reflected in reality was another matter." The dispute over gas exploration rights stems from an unsettled demarcation in the sea where the two countries' exclusive economic zones overlap. China has been developing several gas fields near the Japan-proposed line of separation. Tokyo says the projects' proximity to the line makes it possible for China to siphon off resources that could be buried under Japan-claimed waters, even if they are located on the Chinese side of the median. China has said any gas fields that lie on the Chinese side of the line are in an area not disputed by the two countries, and development falls within the realm of Beijing's sovereign rights. While the two countries have agreed in principle to jointly develop gas fields in the area, they have so far remained divided over the area where joint projects should take place. Japan says that the two countries should jointly develop all areas close to the median line, but China wants to jointly develop only the gas fields on the Japanese side of the median line.

US slams China's air defense zone in East China Sea
The Pentagon slams China's decision to impose new rules on the airspace in the East China Sea. Beijing has included islands at the heart of a dispute with US ally, Japan in the new zone. US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has accused China of making efforts to alter the status quo in the region. He insists Beijing's decision will not change the way the U-S military conducts operations in the region. On Saturday, China issued a map of an East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone which includes a chain of disputed islands also claimed by Japan. The move has triggered a protest from Tokyo. China's decision comes after the U-S announced last year that it would expand its military presence in the Pacific region.

Hi-tech militarization of South China Sea alarming
Hi-tech militarization of South China Sea alarming SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They said the fact that some parties to the South China Sea dispute are increasingly militarizing the area is the biggest threat to regional stability. This process is not only taking place on the sea, but under it and in the air, said experts attending a conference held in Vietnam’s central city of Da Nang late last week. Vietnam calls the South China Sea the East Sea. The conference aimed to discuss potential solutions for settling the East Sea disputes. Delegates noted that in addition to competing for marine resources like fisheries, and oil and gas, the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles is creating new legal arguments. Dr. Collin Koh Swee Lean, a research fellow at Singapore's S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, said the gathering of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance has so far received little interest in comparison to other superficial activities in the process of building forces in the South China Sea. The importance of those activities cannot be denied, he stressed. The cost for unmanned aerial vehicles, drones, is quite high but several countries have begun to use them, and China has taken the lead in deploying them in the East Sea area, he said. Other experts worried that a lack of international regulations on the deployment of advanced technologies in the East Sea will increase the risk of conflict in the region. For example, in December, 2016, the Chinese navy seized an underwater drone placed in the water off the Philippines coast and did not return it for more than four days. The U.S. had called the seizure "unlawful." The East Sea disputes have lasted for many years. China claims almost the entire sea area, including waters close to Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam. It has also put up artificial islands turning them into garrisons. Australia, Japan and the U.S. have urged ASEAN and China to ensure that a co... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Japan: Chinese ships enter disputed waters in East China Sea
According to the Japanese coastguard, the Chinese vessels entered the territorial waters around one of the islands at the heart of a dispute with China. This is the third such entry by China into the disputed waters since last week. Chinese ships and aircraft regularly approach the archipelago after Japan nationalized some of the islands in September 20-12. Relations between Tokyo and Beijing have fallen to their lowest point after a long-running dispute over the islands which are thought to be rich in natural resources.

G7 backs ASEAN on South China Sea dispute, Vietnam cheers
Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has lauded G7 members for supporting the stance of ASEAN countries on disputes in the South China Sea, commonly known as the East Sea in Vietnam. ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, has said it is necessary to strengthen cooperation in ensuring security, safety, freedom of navigation and aviation, and called for peaceful settlement of disputes in the waters on the basis of respect for international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982 (UNCLOS). ASEAN countries also want concerned parties to respect diplomatic and legal processes that promote peace, stability and cooperation in the region and the world, Phuc told the expanded G7 Summit in Canada on Saturday. Vietnam backs summit host Canada’s focus on oceans and stands with G7 members on finding solutions together to protect the ocean environment, the PM was quoted by the Vietnam News Agency as saying. Phuc proposed the establishment of an extensive cooperation forum between G7 countries and coastal nations to exchange experiences, transfer technologies and raise funds for climate change adaptation, including responding to rising sea levels and protecting the marine environment. He said the goal of keeping a clean marine environment can only be reached when peace, stability and cooperation is preserved and spread across oceans. Vietnam stands by its pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 8 percent in line with the United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP21, Phuc said. He called for further support from G7 members and the larger international community to improve Vietnam’s capacity to monitor and adapt to climate change, sea-level rise and saltwater intrusion, as well as manage and use the Mekong River’s resources in a sustainable way.

ARTS AND CULTURE: Dong-hae[East Sea] Shown through the Maps
And now it's time for our arts and culture segment. Yim Yoonhee is here to share this weeks latest. Good afternoon. Good afternoon. We're going to be a looking at a special exhibition today that centers on a collection of old maps, which provide evidence in a dispute that dates back decades. This is the argument over what to call the body of water between Korea and Japan. The map collector has spent the past 30 years of her life traveling around the world,... gathering these maps and she hopes they will help resolve the issue. Let's take a look. [PACKAGE START] It's human nature to be curious...in fact, curiousity is what drove people to the unknown...leading to the creation of the universal language of a map. The lines and shapes have come together over the years, drawn by many, used by many more. Early world maps date back to hundreds of centuries ago. And since, mapmakers also known as Cartographers have been blending art and science, creating these masterpieces. But as beautiful as maps are to look at, they're undeniably necessary in our lives, both in the present, as well as for the past. [KOREAN] "This exhibition is meant to be seen by many people. We want them to come and learn from these maps because maps have something to say. They're not just to look at. They're meant to be read and used to record history." KIM Hye-jeong has been actively studying and collecting maps since her 2nd year in college. She's been all over the world...studying cartography and how maps came to be. It all started when she realized that the body of water between Japan and Korea had originally been called "Sea of Joseon," referring to the ancient dynasty of Korea. These maps, also made in Japan, continue to show the body of water as "Sea of Joseon"...throughout the years. [KOREAN] "This map is called , made in 1810 in Japan. Here it's labeled Sea of Joseon. This map made by the Japanese shows that they called it "Sea of Joseon" and Koreans at that time also recognized it by that name as well. Now if you look here it says "The Great Sea of Japan." Since the 1700s, that's the way they had it but during the 1800s, when the Japanese Imperialism began to take hold, maps started changing, and the Sea of Joseon became Sea of Japan. It's not just with Japanese made maps. Maps from around the world show similar findings. Cartographers from various countries continually labelled the body of water as "Correan Sea" or "Gulf of Corea"...yet many people today fail to recognize this title. Kim is determined to correct this error and pass on the truth for the generations to come, because she believes yesterday's history is today and today is tomorrow. [STUDIO] The disputes we've seen erupt between Korea and Japan in recent years have pushed relations to new lows. That's resulted in many people harboring negative feelings. Does Kim fall in that category? You know, she doesn't. Kim Hye-jeong, the map collector, said she doesn't have any negative feelings about Japan. She actually spent the majority of her childhood in Japan and some of her closest friends are from there. She said she just wants to show people the truth and leave a present for not just future Korean generations, but for the world. You mentioned earlier that this exhibition has been to different countries. Where have they been, and where will they go next? So far she's already been to Mongolia, Italy, even Japan with these maps. She said her next target is the U.S.... Where the state of Virginia recently passed legislation that will require textbooks to use both the East Sea and Sea of Japan names... That's right, and Kim actually contributed to that. But she wants to visit the U.S. with her maps because she believes that it should be called Dong-hae, with East Sea put in brackets on the side. The reason being is that Dong-hae actually means the "sea of sunrise" and it has sacred meaning to Korea. Many early maps did use this title, including maps from China. So she hopes her findings can help end the arguments, and restore the rightful name to this body of water.
