South Korea on Sunday installed a 1.2-meter-tall monument on its easternmost islets of Dokdo, with a Cabinet minister calling it a "symbol of Korean sovereignty," amid a diplomatic flare-up over Japan's territorial claims.
The stone monument is inscribed in Korean with "Dokdo" on the front and the "Republic of Korea" on the back, along with writing on the side about President Lee Myung-bak's visit to the island this year.
