Japan says it will bring its territorial dispute with South Korea to the International Court of Justice unilaterally.

Japan's foreign minister Koichiro Gemba issued a statement on Thursday after Seoul officially rejected Tokyo's proposal to jointly refer the dispute over the Takeshima islets in the Sea of Japan to the court.

The statement says the Japanese government had expected South Korea to accept its proposal and explain the country's position at the international court, as its government has been calling for a "global Korea."

It expresses disappointment with what it terms South Korea's failure to offer any substantive counter-proposals to resolve the issue.

The statement adds Japan will continue to take appropriate measures, including taking the dispute alone to the court, to resolve it calmly and peacefully based on international law.

Grounds that South Korea insists on the integral territory do not exist at all. It is the evidence not to receive the trial.
