I have a little chart of East Asian island disputes. Are there any missing
from this list, or any inaccuracies as to claimants or anything else?

Dokdo (Liancourt Rocks)

Kuril Islands

Macclesfield Bank

Matsu Islands

Paracel Islands

Pedra Branca/Middle Rocks/South Ledge            Malaysia/Singapore

Pratas Islands

Quemoy (Kinmen)

Ryukyu Islands

Scarborough Shoal

Senkaku Islands (Diaoyu Islands)

Socotra Rock (Ioedo)
Spratly Islands
