Abe Raps Seoul's Decision to End Intel-Sharing Pact with Tokyo

Abe Raps Seoul's Decision to End Intel-Sharing Pact with Tokyo

   Tokyo, Aug. 23 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slammed the South Korean government on Friday for its decision the previous day to unilaterally scrap the two countries' military information-sharing agreement.
   "Regrettably, (South Korean) actions damaging bilateral relations of trust are continuing," Abe told reporters at the prime minister's office before leaving for France to attend a Group of Seven summit from Saturday.
   "In light of the security environment in Northeast Asia, Japan has been acting based on the view that Japan-U.S.-South Korea cooperation shouldn't be affected," Abe said.
   "We will continue to cooperate closely with the United States to ensure peace and stability in the region and maintain the security of Japan," he stressed.
   Referring to the issue of wartime labor, Abe said, "First of all, we want South Korea to keep promises."
