- FROM: Mr. Fearey
- SUBJECT: Islands
- In his attached memorandum, Mr. Boggs states that although he has "tried all resources in Washington" he has been unable to identify Dokdo and Parangdo, mentioned in the Korean Embassy's note. On re-ceiving Boggs's memo. I asked the Korean desk to find out whether anyone in the Korean Embassy officer had told him they believed Dokdo was near Ullengdo, or Takeshima Rock, and suspected that Parangdo was too. Apparently, that is all we can learn short of a cable to Muccio.
- As regards the French desire to change "Spratly Island" to the "Spratly Islands", Boggs now says that the plural is probably better though he has always previously supported the singular. Spratly is definitely a group of islands, not just one island.
