South Korean Prime Minister Lee Wan-Koo has warned that Japan’s revised textbooks for junior high schools distort history by laying claims to disputed islands.

Premier Lee made the remarks during a specially called press conference in the capital Seoul on Thursday.

The top South Korean official said Tokyo would face a “grim judgment” if it failed to address the realities of history.

“You can never cover up stark truth. (Japan) will eventually face a grim historical judgment,” Lee said, adding, “(Japan) must stop distorting history.”
