WTO Discloses S. Korea's Complaint against Japan

WTO Discloses S. Korea's Complaint against Japan

   London, Sept. 16 (Jiji Press)--The World Trade Organization on Monday disclosed Seoul's recent complaint against Japan's tighter controls on exports of three semiconductor materials to South Korea.
   The complaint, dated Wednesday, claimed that the Japanese measure constitutes "politically-motivated, disguised restrictions on trade."
   South Korea believes that the measure is based on "political considerations unrelated to any legitimate export control considerations," according to the complaint.
   The measure causes "unnecessary delay and other serious restrictions to the exportation of these products and their related technologies" bound for South Korea, the complaint also said.
   Under the WTO rules, the two countries will refer the issue to a dispute settlement panel if they fail to resolve it within 60 days.
