Japan’s consulate general in New York was found to have sent a letter in February to a local superintendent of educational affairs, opposing the dual use of the name for the islets – Dokoto and Takeshima, according to Seoul’s Yonhap News agency. An association of South Korean parents in New York pledged Thursday that it would push for the use of the Korean name of Dokdo in history textbooks of New York public schools.
