South Korea today formally rejected Japan's proposal that the two countries ask an international court to settle a bitter row over disputed islands, labelling Tokyo's stance "wrong".

South Korea last week received a "note verbal" -- an unsigned diplomatic missive -- from Japan suggesting that both sides jointly refer the dispute to the International Court of Justice for settlement.

South Korea's reply was delivered today through a Japanese diplomat in Seoul.
