S. Korea Notifies Japan of Exit from Military Info Pact

   Seoul, Aug. 23 (Jiji Press)--The South Korean government on Friday notified Japan in writing of its intent to exit the bilateral military intelligence-sharing agreement.
   First Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Cho Sei-young summoned Japanese Ambassador to South Korea Yasumasa Nagamine to the South Korean Foreign Ministry office to make the notification.
   Nagamine conveyed the Japanese position on the matter and made a strong protest.
   The development came amid soured ties between the two Asian neighbors over history and trade issues.
   The two countries' General Security of Military Information Agreement, or GSOMIA, was set to be extended automatically on an annual basis if no objection was raised from either of its parties by the deadline on Saturday.
