Krista E. Wiegand, recent POSCO Visiting Fellow at the East-West Center, explains that "The South Korean government will not be able to deal with the larger issue of security relations with Japan until disputed issues symbolized by Dokdo/Takeshima are sufficiently resolved—and the likelihood of this happening anytime soon is fairly low."
