Ulsa treaty illegal and invalid
It is 113 years since the Japanese imperialists cooked up the "Ulsa (1905) Five-point Treaty" for reducing Korea to a colony. The forcible fabrication of the "treaty" shows well the impudent and shameless gangster-like nature of the Japanese imperialists.
In order to "conclude the treaty", the Japanese imperialists deployed their aggression troops in various parts of Seoul where Korea’s Imperial Palace was located to surround the palace with double and triple rings. And they dragged out ministers of the Korean government to the conference hall of the Cabinet by force of arms and compelled them to take a vote on the "treaty". They even conducted such impudent act of stamping the then foreign ministry’s official seal on the "treaty" by themselves.
