More precisely, the collection of rocks in the middle of the sea is important to the Korean ruling class as a nationalist symbol that can always be revived to turn people’s attention toward old anti-Japanese feelings.

In 1849, French whale hunters began to call Tokto ``Liancourt Rocks,'' after a French whaler ship, and this later became a common name for the islets on European maps produced before the 20th century.

As a compromise, the allies gave Ullung (Utsuro) Island to Korea and Tsushima to Japan with the "Liancourt Rocks" (Tokdo/Takeshima) disputed.
