S. Korea Decides to Scrap Intel-Sharing Pact with Japan

S. Korea Decides to Scrap Intel-Sharing Pact with Japan

   Seoul, Aug. 22 (Jiji Press)--The South Korean government said Thursday it has decided to scrap its military intelligence-sharing pact with Japan.
   Seoul will notify Tokyo of its intent in writing before the notification deadline on Saturday.
   The one-year pact, called the General Security of Military Information Agreement, or GSOMIA, was concluded originally in November 2016.
   It is renewed automatically unless either party notifies the other of its intent to terminate the pact at least 90 days in advance.
   The expiration of the pact is seen negatively affecting the security cooperation among the two Asian countries and the United States amid persisting security threats from North Korea.
